Many dream of making the world a better, more inclusive place. But dreaming isn’t enough. Capital alone and operational expertise isn’t enough. When innovative solutions are paired with an alchemy of people with purpose, capital, operational expertise and deep market understanding, the dream of financial inclusion becomes a reality in emerging markets. At Quona, we bring the alchemy of dreams into the light of day. Because we’re not just dreamers, we’re dreamers who do.
Purpose and profits should not be mutually exclusive, yet it’s far more difficult to evaluate social returns than financial ones. Working with other leading impact investors and fintech firms, we developed a framework that defines and measures the social returns of our portfolio across three core criteria: access, quality, and markets.View Portfolio

Quona and its portfolio benefit from a strategic relationship with Accion, a global nonprofit committed to creating a financially inclusive world, with a pioneering legacy in microfinance and fintech impact investing. Accion’s global presence, technical expertise, institutional relationships and history of impact are literally part of Quona’s DNA: the firm got its start as an idea within Accion before becoming an independent
venture firm in 2015.
