MCE Social Capital is a pioneering private sector program that leverages private capital to provide small business loans to poor entrepreneurs in developing countries. With microcredit loans, impoverished women create and build home-based businesses (e.g., making soap, animal husbandry, weaving, etc.).

Because poor women do not have collateral or credit histories, Guarantors – like the Meyer Family Enterprises – pledge guarantees (not a donation or grant) to back microloans. Guarantors do not realize a return on the guarantee risk, but each guarantee sustains up to 5,000 new microcredit business loans, feeding 25,000 people in the developing world.
