About Us


VisionFund Honduras OPDF is a leading microfinance institution established as a subsidiary of VisionFund International, a global microfinance institution operating in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East/Eastern Europe. VisionFund International is a wholly owned subsidiary of World Vision International, a Christian relief development and advocacy organization. Working together, we provide the foundations for local economies to flourish in healthy and safe communities.


We provide financial services to people who would otherwise have little or no access to credit. The well-being of children, families and communities in Honduras is our main focus. We serve the country’s poorest people by helping them start or grow their own businesses through loans of just a few hundred dollars.


VisionFund Honduras OPDF has been supporting clients since 1995. We serve the micro and small enterprise sector, providing appropriate financing to thousands of Hondurans. Their economic position has deprived them of financial services provided by the traditional banking system.


For over two decades we have been helping the poor, who are able to start their own business. Our financial services complement the objectives of World Vision to reach those living in poverty. These combined interventions help improve their lives, the future of their children and the communities where they live.
