Committment (MNOK)

Financial Institutions


Fondo de Desarrollo Local (FDL) began its operations in 1992 as a unit of the research and development department at a local university. In its early years, FDL operated mainly as a second-floor financial institution and in 1997 it restructured as an MFI providing loans directly. Today, FDL is a strong MFI that has emerged as a leader in the Nicaraguan Microfinance sector. Norfund's investment provides much-needed capital for the institution to continue increasing its customer base and providing more products within the sector.
