About us

Oikocredit is a social impact investor and worldwide cooperative. We have over four decades of experience in promoting sustainable development through investments. We focus our investments on financial inclusion, agriculture and renewable energy.

What we do

Oikocredit is guided by the principle of empowering low-income people to improve their livelihoods. We support partner organisations in Africa, Asia and Latin America by providing loans, equity investments and capacity building.

Creating social impact

Social impact is at the heart of Oikocredit’s work. Through our network of local staff we’re able to respond to the needs of our partners and offer solutions that go beyond financing.

We prioritise social impact while safeguarding the environment and generating fair financial returns for our investors.

Supported by our members and investors

Oikocredit was founded in 1975 as an ethical investment channel. The cooperative is privately financed by individuals and institutions who wanted to use their money for positive change.

Oikocredit’s loyal and committed community of cooperative members and investors enables us to provide long-term capital to our partners.
