Mission Alliance and Strømme Foundation, through their microfinance subsidiaries Alliance Microfinance AS
and Stromme Microfinance AS are Norway's largest private players in microfinance. Through more than 20
years of microfinance operations on three continents in the South, we have gained a unique understanding of
microfinance as a tool to help people out of poverty.
Long and broad experience, local presence in the countries in which we operate and the high focus of social
return has given us a leading position in the Norwegian context.

Microfinance AS. GAVN Microfinance AS provides Norwegian investors a platform for social investments in
GAVN Microfinance AS was established to put money to work so that poor people can work themselves
