As part of our work, we are committed to supporting ongoing development in the countries and communities where we operate. This is what informs our CSR policy and is why each ASAI microfinance institution allocates between 0.5 per cent. and 1 per cent of their profits towards CSR activities.

Our CSR activities are wide and varied – supporting programs spanning education, health, disaster relief and beyond.

In 2017, this included establishing educational “Centres of Excellence” for children in India, launching a scholarship programme for clients’ children in the Philippines, supporting health screening programs in Ghana and Nigeria, and disaster relief activity in India, Ghana, Nigeria, Sri Lanka and the Philippines
