My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Working Capital for Community Needs, Inc., Madison, WI, USA
WCCN is doing a great job of allowing the people of Central and Latin America to make a dignified and decent living in their home countries.
On a study tour sponsored by WCCN I met a number of individuals and cooperatives that receive the loans from WCCN in Nicaragua. My favorite group receiving a loan was La FEM (Fundacion Entre Mujers). This group of women use their loan money to buy land in the women's names and grow organic coffee. We got to see how they make organic compost with worms. Not only do these women farm but they educate themselves in women's health care and fight abuse of women in their country.
I have been donating money to this organization for years and recently I became an investor. Now not only am I helping to provide a way for the peoples of Central and Latin America to make a living but I also make a small interest when they pay back their loans.
