History of DAWN
Focused on microentrepreneurs and small businesses, Early Dawn Microfinance Company Limited (DAWN) was one of the earliest MFIs established in Myanmar. It was originally launched in 2002 as a program under Save the Children International. In 2015, Accion International, the Dutch Development Bank, FMO, and Triodos Investment Management formed a consortium and invested in DAWN to establish it as a premier institution that could serve as a model for the country’s nascent microfinance industry and influence the development of the sector. Since then DAWN has grown to be one of the largest MFIs in Myanmar, and is working to expand and improve its services with innovative models to new market segments and geographies, while increasing its services in existing areas of operations. DAWN is registered with the Ministry of Planning, Finance and Industry and operates with a deposit-taking license granted by the Financial Regulatory Department.
