Erase Poverty Foundation
The Erase Poverty Foundation equips small business owners in the U.S. to support microentrepreneurs in the developing world through microloans while at the same time strengthening their own bottom line. Take a look at their website at: http://www.erasepoverty.org
When small businesses join the EPF network, they commit to a monthly fee. Part of the monthly fee goes toward supporting a pre-screened list of microentrepreneurs through existing microfinance facilitators such as Kiva. The other part of the fee pays for sophisticated marketing tools created by EPF staff to get the word out about their commitment to supporting microentrepreneurs. As a result, microentrepreneurs in the developing world receive consistent support from a large network of American small business owners, and the small businesses in the network gain a substantial marketing edge. They have the opportunity to 'do well by doing good,' a marketing approach that is normally available only to large corporations like Whole Foods.
Joanna Wasmuth, the creator and director of Erase Poverty Foundation, has years of experience as a small business owner and most recently served for many years as the Director of Microfinance Marketing for World Vision International. She's uniquely gifted and experienced to make a project like EPF work.
We believe EPF is a significant new effort with a big potential upside, and we couldn't be more pleased to offer Joanna and her team fiscal sponsorship as well as administrative and consulting services.
