Whole Planet Foundation is a Whole Foods Market non-profit dedicated to alleviating poverty through microcredit around the globe in countries that supply stores with products. Currently, that's 25 communities in 19 cities in the Unitest States and 76 other countries. Microcredit is small loans - the current average first loan size is $174 - with no formal contract or collateral, provided to low-income entrepreneurs to create or expand a small business, mostly home-based, for the opportunity to generate income and lift themselves and their families out of poverty.
In too many places, access to clean water to wash hands and enough money to simply buy food for the day is a challenge. During this global pandemic, Whole Planet Foundation continues to alleviate poverty for the world's poorest people who have found ways to pivot and run their microbusinesses in new ways, thanks to their own ingenuity and the support of local microfinance organizations.
