📰 Goldfinch in the Media
Goldfinch was featured in a16z’s first annual State of Crypto report as one of the protocols leading real world impact in the DeFi space. Goldfinch creates this impact by lending to real Borrowers (mature fintechs or credit firms) based in emerging markets around the world.
One example of the protocol’s real impact comes from its lending to Greenway via the credit firm Almavest. Greenway is an India-based manufacturer of clean, efficient cookstoves. The company distributes these stoves in rural India where open-fire cooking has proven to be detrimental to one’s health. Read more here.
