HOW IT WORKS
WCCN leverages the power of Microfinance and Socially Responsible Investing through its Capital for Communities Fund to invest in low-income entrepreneurs in South and Central America.
The Capital for Communities Fund is a social investing fund, channeling funds from socially responsible donors and investors to Latin American non-governmental organizations that specialize in providing credit and access to international markets to marginalized people. These are self-sustaining, nonprofit and for profit microfinance institutions and cooperatives with years of experience lending to and working with the poor in Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Peru.
Loans to farmers, cooperatives and small businesses benefit whole communities as funds circulate at the local level. A farmer, cooperative or small business that receives a loan buys goods and services and employs other people, furthering the community benefits of the loan. Your loan can generate employment and allow Latin Americans to feed their families and positively contribute to their communities.
Your investment makes you a partner and participant in international economic development. The people of Latin America are not asking for charity – just the opportunity to produce and earn a fair wage.
