Working Capital for Community Needs

Founded in 1984, Working Capital for Community Needs (WCCN) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to create opportunities for access to microfinance, services and markets to improve the lives and communities of the working poor in Latin America.  WCCN empowers low-income Latin American entrepreneurs by sustaining partnerships with Microfinance Organizations and Farming Cooperatives in Ecuador, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Peru.

The people who receive our support have the abilities, work ethic and hope for a better life.  What they don’t have is access to financial resources and technical assistance.  As an investor and/or donor of WCCN, you can personally partner with us to make this important work happen.
