For the past six years, Seventh Generation has been a member of Whole Planet Foundation, a private, nonprofit organization established by Whole Foods Market to provide grants to microfinance institutions in the U.S., Latin America, Africa, and Asia. These institutions develop and offer a microenterprise loan program along with training and other financial services to the self-employed poor.
