GreatNonprofits, as an impartial aggregator of reviews, takes no position on allegations made or
issues raised by third parties. However, donors and volunteers can read recent news about this
organization and determine for themselves whether such information is relevant.
I have followed this organization for a couple years now. Two aspects come to mind that really set WEI apart from other projects:
The mission is not about 'hand-outs', but rather funding entrepreneurial training and opportunities. The loans not only provide a lifeline for the receiving entrepreneur and family; by creating new businesses they also support the community, both economically and socially.
Ms. Murphy's passion, intelligence and drive to make a difference are evident after even a short conversation. Those traits are reflected by everyone involved in the organization, and are the reason that WEI will be very successful.
