Watch a recap of the 2023 event
Whether you attended in-person or bid on virtual auction items, your support helped us to raise more than $125,000 for microcredit entrepreneurs across the globe!
We provide funds to pro-poor microfinance institutions.
They empower entrepreneurs and smallholder farmers living in poverty by creating access to financial capital in the form of microloans.
Since we were established by Whole Foods Market in 2005, we've funded over 7 million microloans to help entrepreneurs improve their own lives in countries where Whole Foods Market sources products. Loan repayments grow our impact over time, as funds cycle through the microfinance institutions and communities we fund.
