Business is a powerful tool. It creates opportunity, uplifts communities, and drives the economy.

For 70 years MEDA has been focused on harnessing the power of business to create sustainable and lasting solutions to poverty for entrepreneurs around the globe. From MEDA’s first investment in Paraguay in 1953 to today, we’re honored to have worked with hundreds of thousands of business owners and farmers over the last 7 decades. Brilliant, innovative and resilient entrepreneurs who, with access to the right business supports, have lifted themselves, their families, and their communities out of poverty.

So many people have contributed to MEDA’s journey to our 70th year. From donors and investors to business partners, to staff, board members, and volunteers. We haven’t done this alone!  With your support MEDA has equipped entrepreneurs around the globe with access to the resources they need to fulfill their God-given potential to earn a livelihood.
