Positive Planet was created out of the growth and transformation of PlaNet Finance, of which the initial mandate, at its creation in 1988, was to fight poverty through the development of microfinance.
Having developed its experience of financial inclusion which remains an important component of its activity, Positive Planet has also conducted projects centered on entrepreneurship, financial education, and the organization of value chains over several years.
The headquarters are in Courbevoie, France. It has developed its activities in 39 countries, and manages them through local satellite organizations in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Europe, and the USA.
In the past, responsAbility SAS and MicroWorld.org provided funding for microfinance institutions, whilst MicroCred and mBank focused on financing entrepreneurs. FinanCités supported entrepreneurs in France’s deprived urban areas by taking equity in their businesses and by offering them personalizaed coaching.
Today, the Positive Planet Foundation supports Positive Planet's NGO projects by organizing different key events throughout the year: particularly the Positive Planet Awards and the Positive Cinema Week as well as charity dinners.
