I like Oikocredit’s transparency, accountability, and how it tracks social impact. I appreciate their efforts to promote diverse strategies such as cooperatives and fair trade enterprises as well as microfinance institutions. Their commitment to empower women is even more important now as we struggle to end poverty worldwide in the new reality of this economy.
