PlaNet Finance is an international non-governmental organization (NGO) that aims to alleviate poverty worldwide through the development of microfinance.
PlaNet Finance Group is an international organization whose mission is to fight against poverty through the development of microfinance. PlaNet Finance is a leading provider of services contributing to the promotion of financial inclusion.
PlaNet Finance offers services that develop the microfinance sector and thereby enable poor populations excluded from financial services to gain access to a loan, save or benefit from an insurance in order to create and develop revenue generating activities and protect from life’s risks.
PlaNet Finance is built on an international network of 19 offices in Europe, North America, Latin American, Asia, Africa and Middle East. It runs activities in close to 50 countries around the world.
Positive Planet’s mission is to help men and women across the world create the conditions for a better life for future generations.
Positive Planet was created out of the evolution of PlaNet Finance, whose initial mandate since 1998, was to fight poverty through the development of microfinance. Over the last 20 years, financial inclusion has evolved considerably. From a series of small initiatives, it has become a large-scale movement offering both financial and non-financial services, improving the lives of hundreds of millions of people.
Today, the challenge facing us is not so much in pursuing development for the sake of development, but to ensure its quality and long-term orientation. It must be fair, promote a healthy environment, make water and abundant sustainable energy readily available, ensure access to education and health for everyone, and procure housing for all. When development achieves these objectives, it allows everyone, and particularly the poorest, to fulfil their potential for the benefit of future generations, which is the very definition of the positive economy.
