Your donation will give a rural woman in East Africa the opportunity to start her own business. With the revenues generated from her micro-enterprise, she will be able to raise the standard of living for her entire family and help make their future more secure. Because the WMI program provides loans, and not subsidies, your donation will continue to provide seed capital for successive generations of WMI borrowers.

WMI is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code. WMI directors and officers do not receive monetary compensation for their services. All donations are tax deductible.
