Counterpart has been building the capacity of Guatemala’s indigenous farmers to increase sustainable crop yields, get agriculture loans, and bring their products to market.

We’ve reached 35,000 families over five years. This model is ready to go to scale in Guatemala’s Western Highlands and across the country.

$16 million in microfinance loans to farmers

99% repayment rate

Reaching More Farmers and Families

We want to expand this successful model through the Rural Prosperity Fund — a blended capital opportunity combining philanthropic and market financing to fight poverty. Counterpart is well-positioned with an office in-country, staff expertise, commercial relationships in the agriculture sector, and proven partnerships with relevant government agencies – but we need the right investors to make it happen.

  • Philanthropists: More leverage for your grant funds.
  • Social Impact Investors: Market solutions to reach women, youth, and indigenous peoples in Guatemala.
  • Corporations: More quality products for your supply chains.

Create Impact With Us

Help us break the cycle of poverty in rural, indigenous communities in ways that transform individuals, communities, and Guatemala itself. We’re looking for partners who want to reach poor communities not supported through traditional programs — who want to create something BIG.
