My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Working Capital for Community Needs, Inc., Madison, WI, USA
I have been a member and donor of WCCN since the 1980s. It's a unique people to people organization which began as a sister state relationship between Wisconsin and Nicaragua. It's small lending relationship with CEPAD, the Nicaraguan (protestant) Council of Churches has grown into a much larger
CDFI (community development financial institution) with 26 partner lending NGOs in 6 Central and South American countries. WCCN has safely lent over $98 million for microfinance and high social impact ventures, our current portfolio totaling over $12 million, $10 million of which is borrowed money from impact investors. It remains a solidarity organization with the people of Nicaragua and 5 other countries.
