Through June 2023, the Foundation is alleviating poverty through microfinance partners in the United States and 78 other countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. To date, the nonprofit has disbursed $107 million dollars through microlending partners worldwide, funding 7 million microloans and 35 million income-generating opportunities for a better life for microentrepreneurs and their family members.
