s colleagues at FINCA will readily confirm, I have a penchant for superlatives—like “biggest,” “best,” “greatest”— or unbridled optimism—like “We’re almost there,” “This is a huge break-through,” and my personal favorite “I’m too blessed to be stressed.” Such words match my eternal optimism, an indispensable attribute for a founder who, from day one, has believed that the destiny of village banking is to be one critical tool in the effort to end Asevere poverty on our planet. Within this hyperbolic context, the theme of 2011 as FINCA’s “Best Year Ever” fits nicely. Actually, anyone who has known FINCA for more than a decade will readily agree that over our 27 year life-span, each year has been steadily better than its predecessor. But 2011 was indeed an exceptional year. FINCA’s client growth rate surged to over 900,000. Client savings continued to grow in countries where we are licensed to accept them, allowing clients to create their own safety nets. Our region programs joined in becoming fully sustainable for the first time, and many of our Subsidiaries began updating their computerized information systems. And the formation of FINCA’s new holding company has ushered in a new era of outreach that will be unprecedented in our more than a quarter-century history. All this was achieved in the midst of a global economic crisis. But there’s more and, in my opinion, it’s the most important part of all. 2011 was the year that FINCA’s board of direc- tors established its Social Performance Audit Committee (SPAC); FINCA staff conducted a comprehensive review of seven years of research data to measure program impact on client well-being; and FINCA pledged itself to a new campaign to both (1) target even-poorer clients and (2) promote new projects—such as food security, health, education, housing, and personal empowerment—that assist our clients to sustainably rise above the poverty line. This kind of alignment of purpose—from the board of directors down to the lowest-level credit officer—is also unprecedented in the global movement. As an adolescent, I remember that in the kitchen of our home hung a sign that read: “Grow old with me. The best is yet to be.” To FINCA’s many friends and supporters, I guarantee you that our best years are still ahead.

She first learned about FINCA from a neighbor who was a member of FINCA Tanzania’s Valentine Village Banking group. The neighbor encouraged her to take a loan because she was convinced that it would help her expand her business. Jesca decided to join the group in 2005, and used her first loan of TZS 200,000 or about $130, to buy a variety of vegetables, rent a table at the local market, and pay school fees for her brother and sisters. Today, Jesca is in her 29th loan cycle with FINCA Tanzania, is still a member of the Valentine Village Banking group, and currently has a loan for TZS 1,500,000 ($950). She’s added another product line to her business—selling chickens—and can now count on a regular roster of clients. She contracts with a wedding planner to provide food for wedding parties, and also supplies vegetables, fruit and chickens to five hotels on a weekly basis. But according to Jesca, her greatest achievements are that she’s been able to save enough to purchase land and build a house, send all of her siblings through school—her youngest sister is now attending university—and her son is a high-achieving student at the English middle school. “I’m so proud to be part of the FINCA family, and I believe without FINCA loans, my family life wouldn’t be the way it is today,” Jesca says.
