FAST is an international non-profit association based in Rochelle Park, New Jersey. FAST promotes the growth of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in developing countries.

We use our tools, services and project models to help our partners achieve their small and medium-sized business financing goals.

We have brought together non-governmental organizations, socially oriented financial institutions and certification bodies. Social investors are among the main investors, as well as ethical banks, commercial banks, foundations and public and multilateral banks.

We have come together to achieve the goal of increasing sustainable economic development by improving access to financial markets and stimulating the growth of sustainable small and medium-sized enterprises in emerging economies.
