As a social investment pioneer, Oikocredit has proven that a balance between social and financial goals can be found.

In recognition of these achievements, this newsletter features our full year results for 2014, a letter and video from our managing director, David Woods, an interview with two of our finance experts as well as a story on our first ever partner in India.
