ECLOF International celebrating 70th anniversary in Buenos Aires
The board chair people and managing directors of ECLOF’s Latin American members and ECLOF International were joined by friends and partners of ECLOF Argentina—among them representatives of the local member churches and the government through the Microcredit National Committee—for a look back at common achievements and an outlook of what lies ahead.
Founded in 1946 in Geneva, ECLOF International has a long history serving those in need. Along the way it has repeatedly adapted its model to changing times and environments but always retained its social mission. Having started as a funder for church rebuilding in post-war Europe, ECLOF shifted focus to the developing world in the 1960-ies where it initially financed churches’ social projects and during the 1980-ies became one of the first microfinance providers to entrepreneurs and farmers.
