The importance of expanding access to financial services for the world’s poorest people is increasingly recognized.
Currently, CARE is implementing over 74 economic development programs in 66 countries. CARE’s position as one of the world’s largest international non-governmental organizations allows its economic development programs to extend this reach to achieve lasting impacts in fighting poverty. Our focus on the underlying causes of poverty and long-term presence in many countries, allow us to mobilize partnerships and resources to address some of the most intractable challenges countries face, bringing in the specialized expertise that is needed.
CARE’s Market Engagement Strategy will scale up our work in value chains with the goal of empowering 10 million women and girls
