2017 Campaign Goal

We’re happy to report we’ve surpassed our goal to raise $3.2 million for microcredit during the month of March! These funds will allow us to reach people with 96,000 opportunities for a better life.  Thank you for being a part of the global movement to alleviate poverty around the world through entrepreneurship.

Did you miss out on this year’s Prosperity Campaign? You can still give to support prosperity in 69 countries where we fund microcredit.


The average first loan size in the developing world is $187, and each microloan helps an average of five people as microentrepreneurs invest in their families.

Mr. Ogou farms with a loan he received from WPF partner the IRC in Phoenix.
Ana owns a Mexican restaurant with a loan she received from Grameen America.
Maria runs a clothing store in Indianapolis with a loan from Grameen America.
Madely runs a nail salon in Charlotte, NC.
