Years of Experience In Finance


Promoting Financial Inclusion at the Bottom of the Pyramid

Grooming Centre is a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) founded in December 2006 and registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) under Certificate Number CAC/IT/NO 24198. Its mission is to address the near absence of financial services for the large population of economically active poor people engaged in small trading and micro-productive activities across many parts of Nigeria.

The Centre emerged from the strong commitment of a group of microfinance practitioners dedicated to building a vibrant and high-growth organization poised to play a leading role in enhancing access to financial services for the poor. It operates as a membership organization, implementing a radical action program through a range of financial services delivered directly to its members.

Grooming Centre stands as a national institution with an international perspective, committed to mobilizing resources and offering financial services to the entrepreneurial poor who have little or no access to conventional forms of financial services.

The Centre ensures its viability and effectiveness by adopting global best practice approaches, inspired by ASA Bangladesh, a global market leader in microfinance services. This model was introduced to Nigeria through the UNDP-assisted MicroStart programme, reflecting the Centre’s commitment to excellence and sustainability in serving the needs of the poor.
