"Wokai" in Chinese means "I start [an enterprise]", and we chose this name because our organization provides the opportunity for micro-entrepreneurs in China to start small businesses and lift themselves out of poverty. By giving as little as $10, you will help these impoverished Chinese grow and sustain small businesses such as food stands, animal rearing, or corner shops. Wokai works with reputable Field Partners to ensure that 100% of your donation goes directly to funding loan capital for borrowers, and that you can see your direct impact on their lives. Wokai means "I start" in Chinese, and we hope you will start by connecting with these entrepreneurs through our website.
