Financing local solutions that change lives

-

Help us provide opportunities for those who need them most. The Leaf Foundation believes that small business owners should be given the chance to lift themselves and their families out of poverty, while contributing positively to their communities. With micro-financing, resources and education, we enable them to do this.

Our Mission

Our mission is to improve the livelihoods of local communities through economic empowerment and education.

What We Do

To achieve this we work with local small business holders/ entrepreneurs in low-income countries and support them by providing micro-financing, resources or education. 
We are aware that there is no solution that 'fits all', therefore we first examine every project step by step to come up with a solution that is reflective of the local context and needs in question. 

Who We Are

We are a Vienna, Austria based non-profit organisation with the vision at hand that smaller projects can make a enormous impact.
