Kiva Lending Team: World Micro-Market at Yale
We loan because...
we want to partake in a sustainable approach to the alleviation of global poverty.
World Micro-Market (WMM) seeks to economically and socially empower disadvantaged artisan groups in developing countries both by providing them access to more profitable markets on university campuses and services for business development and by advocating fair trade and socially-responsible consumerism.
By providing a market in the U.S., WMM enables Yale students, as well as other globally-conscious consumers, to economically empower impoverished artisans and to directly contribute to the alleviation of global poverty.
WMM also seeks to educate its customers about the artisans, their socio-economic situations, and the unique challenges that they face.
