The non-profit SCBF has been established to assist financial intermediaries in significantly scaling up outreach to the poorest individuals in developing countries, by:
1. Developing and retaining skilled and dedicated management and staff; and
2. Mobilising funding from investors in order to maintain and grow their institutions.
The SCBF focuses on interventions with a clear social mission to serve women, rural areas, micro enterprises, and small enterprises.
Increasing access to financial services will empower poor households, allowing them to strengthen their socio-economic potential.
As a member of the SCBF, BFC takes very seriously its responsibility to promote good governance and adherence to client protection principles.
