Grameen in the UK offers financial support by providing micro-credit business loans to thousands of people who are currently not served by any mainstream financial services. The goal is to improve the economic situation of the  most financially disadvantaged in the UK, initially in the West of Scotland, on a sustainable basis.

We provide a real opportunity for change, enabling individuals to begin to help themselves, their families, their communities and to challenge the cycle of poverty and welfare dependency in the UK.

Who we are

The Grameen Scotland Foundation has been created to focus on poverty alleviation and education across the UK, through the introduction and support of micro credit lending.
