Partner since: 2017
León 2000 places an emphasis on serving borrowers who receive less attention from larger MFIs operating on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua. Women typically comprise over 70% of borrowers, and León 2000 also serves borrowers over 70 years of age, a group not served by some of its competitors. León 2000 is primarily focused on providing credit for small and micro businesses, with over 80% of its portfolio lent for commerce. As the organization continues to grow, León 2000 has expanded into other areas of financial services beyond credit, including microinsurance.
