about

MEDA is an international development association that creates sustainable business solutions to poverty and spurs community economic growth for millions. For 60 years, MEDA has been designing and implementing innovative and effective market-driven economic development programs that improve the livelihoods of families living in poverty around the world.

Founded by a small group of service-oriented business people, MEDA has grown to become a large, dynamic international organization comprised of thousands of members and supporters across North America and Europe. Compassionate women and men invest in areas of poverty around the world; they help others unleash their potential to earn a livelihood in order to provide for their families and enrich their communities.

In order to achieve this goal, MEDA has eight key strategic areas of focus: agriculture, rural financial services, investment in small and medium (SME) businesses, business of health, youth and financial services, deposit mobilization, women's economic development, and an engaged and growing association. MEDA believes its work is not done until it is proven to be sustainable, replicable, scalable and measurable.

We are a recognized leader for establishing best practices in financial services, investment fund development, and market development, solving poverty by responding to each population’s unique needs. MEDA’s competitive edge is to solve issues of poverty through business solutions that integrate all three of our areas of strength.

Our professional, committed staff have grassroots experience, a business orientation and the ability to work at large-scale development issues.
