Making Cents International is a dynamic social enterprise that has been increasing economic opportunities in developing countries for more than twelve years. We are known as a source of high quality technical services, and a thought leader in the economic growth arena. Our training, technical assistance, and knowledge management activities consistently improve the ability of target populations - especially youth, women, smallholder farmers, and vulnerable populations - to begin and grow businesses, participate in profitable value chains, access finance, and obtain meaningful work. Our services are based on an appreciation of client assets and market needs, local capacity building, and a desire to achieve greater sustainable results. Our success is grounded on core competencies that focus on innovation, quality, teamwork, communication, leadership, and knowledge management.
Making Cents is based in Washington, D.C. and currently has a network of associates and consultants around the world. We have provided specialized technical assistance and curricula in over 50 countries in Africa, Asia, the Americas and Caribbean, Europe, and the Middle East.
