Your contribution in any amount supports MCE’s Small and Growing Businees (SGB) portfolio, which invests in organizations generating economic opportunity in Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, and other challenging regions of the developing world.


MCE is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, which means your contribution is tax-deductible. However, we cover our operating expenses from earned revenue, not donations, so your contribution instead goes to MCE’s SGB Fund, which includes:

  • The SME Fund – used to make loans to Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) spurring job creation in Sub-Saharan Africa, and
  • The Permanent Fund to Alleviate Extreme Poverty – used to make loans to promising Microfinance Institutions (MFIs) in Sub-Saharan Africa and other challenging areas of the world.

As organizations repay these loans, MCE redeploys your donation to the next dynamic enterprise, thereby keeping your capital in the field and compounding the impact of your donation over and over and over.

Thank you!
