With the tremendous support of Whole Foods Market shoppers, team members and volunteers, donors, and corporate partners, the Whole Planet Foundation Annual Prosperity Campaign raised $4,249,706 during the month of March. These efforts will support more than 128,000 people with the chance to lift themselves out of poverty through microcredit.
Every quarter Whole Planet Foundation aggregates field metrics from our microfinance partners who are disbursing and collecting microcredit loans to people living in poverty. With a small loan – the current average first size is $178 - an impoverished entrepreneur has the opportunity to create or expand a home-based business and generate income for herself and her family.

In honor of women around the globe who are lifting up themselves and their families through their own hard work and creativity, happy International Women’s Day! Today Whole Planet Foundation celebrates the achievements of microentrepreneurs like Rupa who are using their voice and their personal power to change their own lives through microbusinesses they lead.
Annual Prosperity Campaigns Fueled by Their Dedication
Whole Planet Foundation thrives because of the support of amazing volunteers, fundraisers, and advocates who generously contribute to its mission to alleviate global poverty, especially during the Annual Prosperity Campaign each March.
