Confianza is a holding company created in 2011 to expand Adel Microcreditos S.A. de C.V.’s (AMC), a Salvadoran MFI, footprint regionally. Its Salvadoran operation focused on expanding throughout the rural areas of the country. It began operations in 2000 based out of San Miguel, located in one of the poorest areas of El Salvador and the epicenter of many conflicts during the civil war. Today, the group has operations in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua.
Confianza was Norfund's first direct Microfinance investment in El Salvador. The main office is located in a secondary city, which further entrenches its commitment to the rural communities helping them setup their businesses and manage their agriculture production.
