Unitus believes in the inherent value of every global citizen. As found in their website, they see the potential of all individuals to change their world for the better, given the opportunity.  For the past decade, Unitus worked to transform the future for millions of the world's least fortunate by scaling up highly leveraged, market-based approaches to fighting poverty using the power of microfinance. Once the working poor are no longer excluded from the resources and opportunities of the world's financial markets, they are empowered to realize their full potential, building stronger families, communities, and lives.

In July, 2010,Unitus announced a suspension of it’s micro-finance acceleration activities and is shifting its resources and activities to areas of maximum socio-economic impact for underserved people throughout the world that have yet to attain either scale or commercial viability.  Unitus felt that it had largely accomplished its goal in micro-finance as evidenced by its widespread acceptance in the world and the investment of tens of billions of dollars from the capital markets that now embrace microfinance. 

Global Bridge had supported Unitus during the past few years and looks forward to seeing how their organization evolves and what collaborative opportunities may become available.
