Why give credit to the poor?

Dan Gaidula

In communities void of jobs and based on the informal economy, credit is a a direct means for the poor to improve their family’s lives. Whole Planet Foundation focuses on supporting access to more opportunities in the form of microcredit with world-class organizations that deliver much more than a loan. Our partners provide a multitude of services from literacy workshops, to business training, to critical health services all which are not possible without first investing in the poor’s own personal capacity with microcredit.
