Whole Foods Market founded Whole Planet Foundation in 2005 to alleviate poverty where the company sources products. Today, Whole Planet Foundation has funded over 3 million microcredit loans for people living in poverty in 75 countries.
Donate in Whole Foods Market stores and online during March to help us reach more people living in poverty around the globe.
Htay borrows from Whole Planet Foundation’s microfinance partner BRAC Myanmar. She uses her loan capital to invest in the raw materials necessary to weave baskets to sell in her community.
Your support helps us reach more women like Kiran in India, who used her loan capital from microfinance partner STEP to invest in two goats and one cow. With the investment in additional animals, she is able to increase her profits from the sales of their milk.
