Sikoba [http://www.sikoba.com] is building an IOU platform on blockchain: a system to register, track and clear debt. Targeted at small and micro-businesses in the developing world, its goal is to overcome the limitations of informal credit systems and reduce money dependency.
Etika [https://etika.lu] is a non-profit organisation founded in 1996 which aims to promote alternative financing and responsible investment, in order to promote access to credit for initiatives that give priority to social and cultural utility and international solidarity.
