A farmer in Nicaragua tends to young coffee plants

A farmer in Nicaragua tends to young coffee plants, which will replace and build on his aging crop. This agricultural expansion was made possible through credit offered by a subsidiary lender of Global Partnerships, an impact investor that was able to expand its lending in Latin America thanks to OPIC support. Global Partnerships’ Social Investment Fund 5.0 was a recipient of the 2014 OPIC Impact Award for Access to Finance.

Global Partnerships is a Seattle-based nonprofit impact investor with a twenty year history of expanding opportunity for people living in poverty in Latin America. Their impact support includes dozens of microfinance institutions, health services, strengthening rural livelihoods and lending to micro-entrepreneurs. OPIC has provided financing for four of Global Partnerships’ last five funds, most recently with a $15 million loan for the award-winning fund.
