Facts about Honduras
Over 60 percent Hondurans live below the national poverty line, and the country’s per capita income is one of the lowest in Latin America. Poverty rates are especially high among rural and indigenous people and in the south, west, and along the eastern border. Poverty in Honduras is compounded by the constant threat of natural disasters – hurricanes and floods – as well as land erosion.
Founded in 1989, FINCA Honduras is a non-banking financial institution licensed to accept savings deposits, and serves both rural and urban areas of the country through 21 branches. FINCA Honduras offers Village Banking, local currency loans, individual, small group, and agricultural loans, voluntary savings products for adults and children, as well as money transfers services and insurance.
