Mission Asset Fund (MAF) is a nonprofit organization with a mission to create a fair financial marketplace for hardworking families. They are an innovative organization in the financial inclusion space and align closely with Grameen America's values. Their solution is simple: they recognize existing lending circles and report their repayments to help them build credit. They recently launched a new website and we love it! Hats off to our friends at MAF. Check out the website here.
