A Message from VisionFund's Board Chair

Jon Hartley, New Zealand

It’s not unusual to hear surprise from lenders, donors or industry colleagues as we describe our growing network’s reach and impact on the lives of millions of children through the loans and financial services that we provide to over 1.2 million of the world’s poor.

We have seen our 7,000 staff in countries across the globe help more rural clients than ever before lift themselves from hardship and suffering, despite natural disasters and difficult economic environments. We are particularly pleased with the people we are attracting to our network both at senior levels - where we now have over 150 years of banking experience; and in roles with our clients - where staff are trained to provide the right financing in a respectful and caring manner.

At VisionFund International, we are enthusiast about the future as we work to aim at improving the lives of seven million children every year by 2020.
