"We are so honored that each of the companies in the Whole Planet Foundation Supplier Alliance for Microcredit have joined forces with Whole Planet Foundation to plant seeds of economic prosperity through these microlending programs," said John Mackey, CEO and Co-founder of Whole Foods Market. "Microlending is a direct and tangible path to economic prosperity, and we thank each of these companies for their commitment."

Whole Planet Foundation is running marketing campaigns in all U.S. Whole Foods Market stores during March in appreciation of the Supplier Alliance Partners.
