Does Whole Planet Foundation set interest rates?

Dan Gaidula

Whole Planet Foundation does not set interest rates. Interest Rates charged by Whole Planet Foundation microfinance partners in the field are impacted by a number of factors and vary by country.  We work with MFIs that have agreed to keep the interest as low as possible while covering inflation, cost of capital, MFI overhead and other associated health, savings, insurance and education services, (when these service are offered) and profit.
