Whole Planet Foundation

Founded in 2005, Whole Planet Foundation’s mission is to empower the world’s poorest people with microcredit and the chance to create or expand a home-based business and lift themselves and their families out of poverty. As of September 2022, the Foundation is alleviating poverty through microfinance partners in the United States and 80 other countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. To date, the nonprofit has disbursed $103 million dollars through microlending partners worldwide, funding 6.3 million microloans and 32 million opportunities for a better life for microentrepreneurs and their family members.
