Financieros sin Fronteras

Whatis Financieros sin Fronteras?

  • Financieros sin Fronteras (FsF) is a non-profit organization established in 2009 as the result of a joint initiative of IE Business School students, faculty and staff in order to foster innovative financial inclusion internationally.
  • For example, through volunteer work of students, faculty and associated experts in the field, FsF:
  • Provides pro-bono consultancy and support to microfinance institutions (MFIs) so that they can measure effectively the results of their activities and become eligible worthy receivers of financial help from different public and private international sources.
  • Is currently involved in research activities related to several aspects of microfinance, mainly through the work of students in different IE degree programs that have shown a particular interest in this field.
  • Through all of its activities, it promotes the social and ethical commitment of private sector firms in order for them to generate a valuable contribution to society.
