Our History

Our history dates back to 1986 when we started working as an NGO. On February 10th, 1992 we became the first microfinance bank in Bolivia, and the first regulated microfiance bank in the World. Our mission was and remains to generate opportunities for the small and micro businesses in Bolivia.

 

Its great merit was to open the doors of the financial system to sectors that were marginalized from formal financing, through financial engineering that, to date, is a benchmark worldwide.

 

 

We were born with $4 million in loans (85% Solidarity Loans), 17,000 credit clients and four offices in La Paz, El Alto, Cochabamba and Santa Cruz.  Our growth exceeded our wildest expectations.

In our first year, Banco Sol closed with $8.8 million in loans; in 2017, we had grown to $1,456 millions in loans.  We were the first ever microfinance bank to get to $1 billion in loans.  Our default rate is the lowest one in the Bolivian financial system. We are a nationwide presence in all departments with over 800 points of attention.
