driving impact through the SDGs
At hiveonline, we consider it our duty to build a sustainable future.
We build partnerships with NGOs and research organisations working with the most disadvantaged communities worldwide to drive impact by creating a financial ecosystem that supports a fairer, more transparent commercial environment for small and micro businesses
Through our work in VSLAs and financial inclusion, hiveonline drives impact across demographic and gender inequality, food security and the root causes of poverty.
Not only have we aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we track metrics for each scale partner to measure our impact.
