My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Wisconsin Microfinance, Madison, WI, USA
This nonprofit is staffed only by dedicated volunteers wholly committed to the cause. They raise seed-money used to make small loans in impoverished areas of Haiti and the Philippines. These loans are made to small (mostly women-owned) businesses, and when repaid, the money is loaned out again to fund new ventures. Loan repayment rates are high so a small investment keeps recirculating to help people. Since it is volunteer-run, fundraising goes almost entirely to help those in need. It is a remarkable organization.
