BlueOrchard Finance S.A. Our Mission is to be a leading commercial microfinance intermediary, providing innovative financing solutions to institutions in emerging markets, and financial and social returns to investors. Our Vision is to contribute to building a strong, healthy and sustainable inclusive financial system worldwide that empowers the working poor, and helps them to improve their standard of living and that of their families.




As a pioneer and leading investment manager in inclusive finance, BlueOrchard works together with investors, microfinance operators and their clients in the growth and development of a sustainable financial system that provides opportunities to the world’s poor. Since its inception in 2001, BlueOrchard-managed funds have provided nearly USD 2bn in loans to more than 260 microfinance institutions (MFIs) that together reach 30 million clients.

BlueOrchard was created to link commercial investors with microfinance. As a first mover in this dynamic industry, we are committed to providing innovative products to a wide range of investors. We have forged strong relationships with multiple stakeholders in the industry and value these relationships highly as we all work together to build a stronger, more vibrant and more inclusive global financial system.

Microfinance is at its core a local business. We firmly believe that on-site due diligence and intimate knowledge of local markets is critically important in making the right investment decisions, both from a financial and social perspective. This local field knowledge is complemented by a rigorous, highly disciplined investment process with standardized procedures and high standards of excellence.
