Global Partnerships

Global Partnerships is an impact investor. We invest in social businesses and nonprofits who deliver products and services to people living in poverty.

Since 1994, GP has impacted more than 5.1 million lives. We are committed to reach the rural poor and empower women to improve their lives and the lives of their families. Among the people our partners serve, 68 percent live in rural areas and 80 percent are women.

GP has invested $235 million in 102 partner organizations in 15 countries. We invest in products and services that help people earn a living and improve their lives.

Our Portfolio

Our Social Investment Funds provide loans to our partners to help sustain and grow proven solutions to poverty. Since 2005, we have formed five social investment funds designed to provide low-cost loans to a select portfolio of mission-driven partners while providing investors with both financial and social returns. 

Our funds provide investors with both financial and social returns. Our investors include foundations and accredited individual investors. Our investors also include religious pension funds and development banks. In addition to providing investors with a financial return, our funds deliver high social return that help people earn a living to escape poverty and improve their lives.
