INVESTING FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
For over 35 years, Working Capital for Community Needs (WCCN) has created opportunities for access to microfinance and services to support low-income entrepreneurs in Latin America. As one of the first social impact funds in the United States, we have invested more than $160 million, reaching nearly 22,500 end borrowers in 2022 alone.
WCCN supports individuals, families, and communities by sustaining partnerships with microfinance organizations and agricultural cooperatives in Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Peru.
SERVED IN 2022
Central to WCCN's initiatives is the belief that women have the right to determine their financial futures, obtain an education, own land, have access to adequate healthcare, and never face the threat of violence. Historically, more than two-thirds of our partner agencies' clients have been women.
WCCN lends to partners who work with female business owners, rural populations, and indigenous communities that have been historically excluded from the financial system. WCCN also provides financing to organizations that provide technical assistance to micro-finance borrowers and cooperative members.
WCCN works with partner agencies to provide improvements to housing for marginalized populations. Combining sweat equity, donated funds, and affordable loans, WCCN is able to assist in providing financing to unbanked and underbanked groups to further support these efforts.
When you give to WCCN, you join a movement of people who are using their resources to promote social change.
By donating today, you will:
Address one of the root causes of poverty and social injustice: lack of access to credit for the disenfranchised.
Support the working poor, women, indigenous populations, and those in rural areas.
Provide financing to around 25,000 microfinance borrowers and smallholder farmers every year.
WCCN has been involved in social impact investing for thirty years, investing over $150 million in Latin America since 1991 and supporting roughly 20,000 people a year. For as little as $100, you can provide small entrepreneurs opportunities to grow their businesses.
