Grameen America

Who We Are

Grameen America is the fastest growing nonprofit microfinance organization in the United States with a proven national solution to advance financial inclusion for women. We provide small loans, training and support to low-income women to help them build businesses, achieve higher family incomes and revitalize their communities.

Who We Serve

Our target population is women who live below the federal poverty line for whom the mainstream financial system is currently out of reach. Our members are women who previously had few options for accessing capital and most lacked bank accounts and credit scores.


Grameen America provides microloans (ranging from $2,000 to $15,000), financial training and support to members. As part of our program, members open free savings accounts with commercial banks and make weekly deposits. We also report microloan repayments to Experian and Equifax, enabling our members to build their financial identity.
