Microfinancing Partners in Africa

Microfinancing Partners in Africa is a Saint Louis-based organization whose mission is to provide grants and direct funding to strengthen and expand microfinancing programs in Africa, and to empower those living in extreme poverty by providing access to financial services and education.

The organization was founded by Sister Toni Temporiti in 2006 and has grown to include programs in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, and the Congo. Each program is unique in that  they are designed to meet the needs of the local people and to be run by local leaders.
