Where we work

AMAS works in areas where capital is a scarce commodity. Currently, AMAS manages microfinance institutions in Bolivia, Ecuador, Vietnam and Liberia. The institutions are developing fast both in terms of client numbers and capital invested, as professional competence is being built locally. We aim to open a new institution every 5 years.
AMAS initiated the process for opening a new microfinance deposit-taking institution (MDI) in Monrovia, Liberia in 2011. Diaconia MDI was registered as a limited liability company in Liberia in December 2012, and received the license in august 2014. However, due to the Ebola outbreak, the bank opened for clients in March 2015.
