Kompanion Bank has a mission to become the leading community development financial institution in Central Asia. Based in Kyrgyzstan, it is already achieving success strengthening financial inclusion through free financial literacy training, support for small businesses and a digitisation strategy that embraces fintech.
For its first 12 years, Kompanion Bank operated as a microfinance institution. Obtaining its banking license in 2016, enabled Kompanion Bank to broaden its offerings beyond credit to include international money transfers, SME loans, payment and cash services, electronic payment cards and correspondent relationships with foreign banks.
