Advantage Capital Partners Invests in Grameen America

Advantage Capital Partners, a venture capital and small business finance firm, committed to funding Grameen America, a microfinance nonprofit organization that provides loans, savings programs, credit establishment and other financial services to entrepreneurs living below the poverty line in the United States.
Almost a year ago, Advantage Capital Partners already committed $200,000 to support Grameen America’s efforts to establish their presence in Washington, DC.
Built upon the success of the Grameen Bank, the most widely recognized microfinance company in the world, which was founded in Bangladesh by Professor Muhammad Yunus (the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006), Grameen America’s mission is to alleviate poverty and spur entrepreneurship by providing small loans, savings programs, credit establishment, and financial education to people living below the poverty line in the United States.
