Try doing something as simple as purchasing a coffee sleeve the next time you are going through your grocery list at Whole Foods…
Y? You will be helping the Whole Planet Foundation, which actively works to help alleviate global poverty.
How? By providing impoverished women on the developing world, with small loans that can help the entrepreneur in them build a small home-based business, and in turn creating a better life for their families!
The average first loan is $187 and there is no contract or collateral required, but instead this credit becomes the access to an opportunity that will open doors and generate new income for these families. When the loans are paid back, they are reloaned, but remaining in the community as additional loan capital!
Here is the best part…
When you donate to The Whole Planet Foundation 100% of your contribution goes DIRECTLY to microlending programs, actively working to alleviate poverty around the world!
