Creating business solutions to poverty
MEDA is an international development association that creates sustainable business solutions to poverty and spurs community economic growth for millions.
Founded by a small group of service-oriented business people, MEDA has grown to become a large, dynamic international organization comprised of thousands of members and supporters across North America and Europe. MEDA believes its work is not done until it is proven to be sustainable, replicable, scalable and measurable.
We are a recognized leader for establishing best practices in financial services, investment fund development, market development and solving poverty by responding to each population’s unique needs. MEDA’s competitive edge is to solve issues of poverty through business solutions that integrate all three of our areas of strength.
Our professional, committed staff have grassroots experience, a business orientation and the ability to work at large-scale development issues.
