Guerrant Foundation

Micro-lending charities like Kiva and FINCA are becoming more and more common…and are making HUGE strides world-wide. The Guerrant Foundation was started by former tennis champ, Anne Guerrant, after seeing for herself as a touring athlete the extreme levels of poverty all around the world. She was most profoundly affected by the women she met, especially mothers in these situations and how such little money it could take to change their lives and make themselves self sufficient. So upon her athletic retirement she formed her own micro-loan foundation that focuses on providing interest-free loans for women to start self-sustaining businesses in Africa and South America.
