Jihan, pictured at the top of this page, is a microcredit client of Whole Planet Foundation's partner Global Fund for Widows in Egypt. After being widowed, she took over the family store with a small loan from Global Fund for Widows and used the funds to purchase more items to sell.
Our Annual Prosperity Campaign in Whole Foods Market stores and online is an opportunity for shoppers, team members, suppliers, and corporate partners to support our mission to alleviate poverty through microcredit loans to entrepreneurs like Jihan around the globe.
Since the first year of our Annual Prosperity Campaign, shoppers have donated $46.5 million. 100% of donations alleviate poverty through Whole Planet Foundation’s worldwide network of microfinance partners. This year's Annual Prosperity Campaign takes place June 23 - July 6.
Microfinance Provides Opportunity
Aurora is part of Grameen America's program to reach women entrepreneurs in Houston, Texas. In order to recieve a small business loan from Grameen America, entrepreneurs form solidarity groups of five women. These groups meet regularly to provide support to each other and guarantee each others' loan repayment. During the COVID-19 pandemic, technology allowed borrowers to continue to stay in touch.
