Today, Oikocredit celebrates its 45th anniversary of a mission to invest in people on low incomes around the world.

In a short video we look back to our founders’ vision and future work together, to thank our thousands of investors, partners, volunteers and staff.

Oikocredit was launched on 4 November 1975 in the Netherlands, and since then our goal has been to promote social justice by providing loans to businesses run by people with low-incomes.

Today our financial inclusion partners reach 38.2 million people, and our agricultural partners reach 557,000 farmers. This huge reach has been achieved through the solidarity expressed by today's 59,000 investors, together with our many other supporters, past and present.

Thos Gieskes, Oikocredit’s Managing Director, said: “I want to thank everyone who supports our work and helps us reach millions of people. You can feel proud of what we’ve achieved together, and I look forward to Oikocredit’s mission continuing, with your support, well into the future”.
