Global Movement of Investors

It is a movement within a movement: a worldwide financial cooperative that promotes global justice by empowering disadvantaged people with financial inclusion, and a worldwide network of investors who make it possible.

Today Oikocredit works with partners in 63 countries and has grown to be the largest private financier of microfinance in the world.  There are now 53,000 investors internationally, about 5,000 of those based in the U.S.   The vast majority are retail, or individual, investors; with institutional investors —churches and church-related organizations, Support Associations and other organizations—playing key roles in making investments as well as organizing and educating individual investors.

Why volunteer groups?

Oikocredit Support Associations are collectives of volunteers whose members are engaged in promoting Oikocredit’s mission. Volunteer associations are part of a long-standing tradition in Oikocredit’s work. In addition to being active volunteers for Oikocredit, Support Associations are members of the Oikocredit International cooperative.

Oikocredit has two Support Associations based in the US – the Western Pennsylvania Support Association and the Oikocredit Northwest Support Association based in Seattle. Click on the regions to learn more about how you can get involved in your local Support Association.
