Micro credits for entrepreneurs
The Buynamicans have chosen to support Wakibi this year. Wakibi is a non-profit organization which fights against poverty in developing countries by enabling entrepreneurship. Enabling entrepreneurship is a value we share :-).
They connect lenders to offer micro credits to entrepreneurs so they can build their business. And having a business gives them an opportunity to provide in their livelihood and that of their families.
Wakibi is largely run by volunteers which means that 100% of the loans actually go directly to the projects. We choose to support female African entrepreneurs. And each month some of our Buynamics get to select a project to support. Want to read more about the partnership between Wakibi and Buynamics, read the interview here.
