Our mission is to create a more equitable and sustainable world by empowering the very poor through microfinance.

We provide the infrastructure and funding to create an opportunity for the very poor who lack access to acceptable financial opportunity to escape from poverty with dignity.  Rooted in the Wisconsin Idea and the University of Wisconsin, our impact extends to Haiti, the Philippines and points beyond.
