Information for MicroPlace Investors

Maturity of Your MicroPlace Investment

In January of 2014, MicroPlace stopped offering new sales of investments for all companies for which it provided services. In September 2015, Oikocredit USA repaid all investors for whom MicroPlace had valid contact details.

Oikocredit USA is preparing to treat a handful of investors as lost investors and transfer any remaining assets to the applicable states unclaimed property office in 2016. If you purchased a Global Community Note (GCN) online through MicroPlace and you have not been repaid, please email with your name, MicroPlace investor number, current address, and phone number. We will investigate your inquiry and provide payment or direct you to the applicable state to obtain your funds.
