The foundation provides grants to microfinance institutions that in turn develop and offer loans, training and other financial services to low-income entrepreneurs in the community.

"Through their generous support, CorePower Yoga is helping to provide poor entrepreneurs -- most of whom are women -- with an opportunity to get ahead: to start her own business, create a steady stream of income and have the chance to lift herself and her family out of poverty," said Philip Sansone, president and executive director of Whole Planet Foundation.
