Be a part of the microfinance movement! Donate today to help savings groups around the world.
CRS' microfinance program is committed to serving the very poor, especially women and vulnerable populations in remote rural communities, often self-employed poor who have little or no access to formal credit or savings services. These programs are designed to strategically target women in an effort to uplift entire families and communities.
When you give, you help women and men join savings groups, receive training and improve their families' lives and their communities.
Currently, our microfinance programs reach more than 3.7 million clients (70 percent women) in 58 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, and Latin America and the Caribbean.

For as little as 80 cents a day…
- Help vulnerable families become self-sufficient.

- Help community sustainability.
Become part of Lifeline, a recurring giving program that helps vulnerable people—70% of them women—get the training they need to start savings-led microfinance groups.
People in rural or poor communities worldwide have little to no access to formal credit or savings services. Without these services, they are held back from growing businesses and saving money.
But you can be their Lifeline—and help neighbors get the training they need to start savings groups. It’s such a simple solution—and makes such a big impact.
Our microfinance programs reach more than 3.7 million clients, helping their families and communities in 58 countries in Africa, Asia, Europe and the Middle East, and Latin America and the Caribbean.
