From the bottom up...
Yunus Funds grows local social businesses that provide employment, education, healthcare, clean water and clean energy to over 17 million people in East Africa, Latin America & India. We turn donations into investments in social businesses, which we reinvest over and over again, multiplying the impact each time.
Our long-term, patient loans and hands-on growth support are delivered by our teams of local professionals, partnering with social businesses to help them flourish. We have offices in Sao Paulo, Bogota, Mumbai, Bangalore, Kampala, Nairobi and Berlin.
...and from the top down
Yunus Corporate guides multinationals (such as Danone, Veolia, McCain, MAN and Tata) to help them transform their purpose. Harnessing our years of experience with social businesses and corporations, we connect the two. With our method, corporations can apply their core competencies to some of the greatest human challenges.
These activities operate under the entity Yunus Social Business GmbH (ltd. company) separate from the charitable entity (gGmbH). Set up as a social business, 100% of Yunus Corporate Innovation’s profits are reinvested to continue to generate and scale our social impact.
