Vitas Group is a commercial holding company created by Global Communities (formerly CHF International) as a long-term vehicle for fulfilling Global Communities’ mission in microfinance and small- and medium-enterprise finance.
We believe that Development Finance is not a venture reserved for governments, social and charitable groups. Rather it is increasingly becoming a competitive field for impact investors interested in growth and break-through markets. Vitas Group was created on the belief that by leveraging partnerships with like-minded investors, Global Communities will be in a much stronger position to fulfill our mission of bringing fair financial services to underserved populations around the world. By working hand in hand with committed commercial partners, we can drastically expand the reach of our development finance services, and bring to life our vision to help thousands more people become full social and economic participants in their communities.
Global Communities believes that the private and not-for-profit sectors can learn from each other, and that the interests of the people we work with are best served by an integrated approach of the two sectors doing business with a “double bottom line.”
