Our work

We are an International Development NGO that for over 35 years have focused on ending the cycle of extreme poverty in rural communities around the world by supporting the growth of local entrepreneurs and social enterprises—creating dignified business and employment opportunities for the most vulnerable men and women that has resulted in a significant increase in household income and uplifted the lives of over 5 million individuals and their families.

We are on a mission to contribute to rising 10 million more people from poverty to prosperity in the most underserved regions of Latin America, Africa, and Asia by leveraging our CODE Method™–a proven and scalable approach to rural market development, supporting entrepreneurship and business growth, creating access to financial services–and ultimately transforming lives.

Our Honorary President is His Majesty the King Felipe VI.
