Fundación Capital is an international non-profit social enterprise, a changemaker aiming at massive asset-building and enhancement for the Poor by integrating community practice, public policies and private markets to achieve results at significant scale. We design and help implement disruptive initiatives (with national governments, banks, investors, civil society organizations, and other key stakeholders) that accompany low-income households in building, accumulating, enhancing and protecting their assets, better manage the risks they face, develop their full potential and capabilities and stand for their rights (behavioral change). We prioritize financial asset-building strategies by banking the unbanked, mobilizing their monetary savings, facilitating access to microinsurance schemes, and other diversified formal financial services. For small and growing businesses, we design tools to connect small entrepreneurs and potential investors and mentors, enhancing productive investments.
