How does OneSeed invest in entrepreneurs?
OneSeed partners with local microfinance institutions (MFIs) in each of the countries where we operate. OneSeed cycles 10% of our total revenue through these partners at no interest. Our partners then loan this capital to small-scale entrepreneurs as collateral-free, shared liability microcredit. Entrepreneurs repay the loan over the course of the loan term as they launch or expand their business.
Whether you're growing rice in Nepal or starting a hair salon in Chile, you need capital to start your businesses. Microcredit is not a solution to poverty, but rather a tool to empower individuals looking to create opportunities through entrepreneurship.
Is OneSeed a non-profit or NGO?
OneSeed is a purpose-driven social enterprise. We are neither a non-profit nor a charity. We do not accept donations because we believe the most enduring and meaningful impact we can create is through business development. Want to support our mission? Join us on the trail.
