About Whole Planet Foundation:
Whole Planet Foundation focuses on giving microloans (small loans) to those living in poverty in the communities where Whole Foods Market sources their products. These microloans can help jumpstart or improve their current business and help people become self-sufficient; bringing themselves out of poverty.

These loans have a repayment rate of 97% and have proven to be very effective and decrease poverty where they are given.

This year we have a large goal of raising $25,000 at Whole Foods Market River Road, that’s 142 full loans!

We are firing up the grill for the Whole Planet Foundation!

Through March 31, Whole Foods Marke will be collecting donations for the Whole Planet Foundation, a program founded to alleviate poverty in developing-world communities where Whole Foods Market sources product. The Foundation provides grants to microfinance institutions that provide loans to impoverished entrepreneurs. These loans, generally $200 or less, are granted to primarily women to allow them to create or expand a small business to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.  In spite of not requiring any collateral or a contract, these microcredit loans have an astounding 97% repayment rate.
