SEDPI Development Finance, Inc.
2015 Special Recognition
SEDPI Development Finance, Inc. (SDFI) was born out of common vision, and a goal of helping out other people get essential tools–education and finance–to improve their living condition, and perhaps one day move out of poverty.
SDFI addresses systemic problems that hinder the provision of basic services to economically empower the poor. It started in 2008 as the financing arm of the Social Enterprise Development Partnerships, Inc. (SEDPI), a capacity building institution in the fields of microfinance, financial literacy and social entrepreneurship.
SDFI was initially established to address the need of microfinance institutions, more particularly those with smaller operations, on capital infusion to accommodate the fast changing landscape of microfinance and become sustainable.
