How it all began...
Vision Microfinance is a platform on the subject of microfinance which was initiated by Impact Asset Management GmbH (formerly known as C-QUADRAT Asset Management GmbH in 2006). Through your investment you enable people without access to money to receive small credits and thereby a chance to extend their small business or to start one.
Vision Microfinance: Help others to help themselves!
Inspired by the „International Year of Microcredit”, dedicated by the U.N. in 2005, Manfred and Guenther Kastner have established the initiative Vision Microfinance and have implemented a sustainable idea successfully in a minimum of time with their team. As we became active for the first time and with a professional realisation, the passion of the sophisticated investment team grew.
Detailed studies and inspirational on-site visits of micro entrepreneurs and microfinance institutions soon followed. We also took part in microfinance conferences and trainings which enabled us to build up important contacts and partnerships with microfinance experts. We succeeded to win over - amongst others - the Armenian Dr. Arman Vardanyan, long-time asset manager and author of numerous research works on developing countries and emerging markets. In addition the board of directors supports us with experienced investment experts.
