About us

History

Samuel Greene, a retired American businessman, settled on the shores of Lake Atitlán in 1962.

 

He makes friends with Cakchiquel farmers and identifies the need for microcredit. He begins this work on a personal level and teaches farmers to save pennies a day to pay the credit weekly. This methodology was successful and gave its name to the Centavo Foundation.

In 1963, seeing that the need exceeded his resource capacity, he contacted 44 businessmen, who provided seed capital to form the Institution.

 

Since then, the Centavo Foundation has had microcredit experiences for housing, land ownership and productive projects, mainly agricultural and artisanal.
