In the world of microfinance, Banco Compartamos is a macro player. As Latin America's largest microfinance institution (MFI), it offers small loans to individuals or groups of primarily female entrepreneurs seeking to establish or build their small businesses. Most of its clients are women who earn money making rosaries, baking cakes, or selling fruit. It also offers life insurance and savings accounts. Founded in 1990 as a not-for-profit group, Banco Compartamos has since grown to have more than 500 offices around the country and has served around 2.5 million clients. It's the first MFI to go public (in 2007). Owned by Gentera, Banco Compartamos is working to expand into other Latin American nations.
