Description

Founded in 1995, Washington Community Alliance for Self-Help is a microenterprise development organization that provides people with low incomes access to capital and business development training. Through a tuition-free program, Washington CASH helps client entrepreneurs to build sustainable business ventures, essentially serving as a springboard for people impeded by poverty, disability or discrimination to transform their lives. The goals of the Washington CASH program are to generate business ownership, financial literacy, savings opportunities and confidence that will lead to the economic self-sufficiency. Our program is based on the same entrepreneurial, poverty alleviation strategy pioneered by the Grameen Bank, winner of the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize. Washington CASH's unique niche is to provide the first step on the ladder to small business ownership to underserved individuals.We believe that self-employment offers a viable alternative to welfare dependency and poverty. Since 1996, Washington CASH has served over 1,500 entrepreneurs, provided over $600,000 in loans and helped start over 700 new businesses.
