As an all-volunteer organization, WE has raised over $1.3 million, funded 20,300 microloans for impoverished women in 6 countries, and supports a San Diego business incubator that launched 256 businesses. As part of a global effort to eliminate extreme poverty, WE intends to double its impact, reach and support base in the next 5 years, and continue that trajectory into the future.

Meet Our Clients

Carmen Baldenegro

Before she received loans from Grameen de la Frontera, Carmen Baldenegro’s store was a simple window into her house. Now it is a well-stocked, separate store with two refrigerators and metal shelves in her small village in Sonora, Mexico.

“If you buy things for yourself, your business won’t thrive,” she says. “It’s important to use part of your profits to keep buying for your business.”

In addition to building her business, Carmen has been able to use her proceeds to take care of her two daughters and supplement her husband’s income from working in the fields and the shrimp hatchery.
