I had an opportunity to interview Joy Stoddard, Development and Outreach Director at Whole Planet Foundation, during SXSW ECO 2013.  Whole Planet Foundation is the non-profit foundation of Whole Foods, which is dedicated to eradicating poverty by supporting micro-finance initiatives across the world.

Ms. Stoddard spoke passionately about Whole Planet Foundation initiatives with Grameen Foundation & Grameen America in micro-finance, a collaboration with CTC International that resulted in a cafe in Kenya, and a collaboration with Green Mountain Energy  & Greyston Bakery.

Good luck to Joy Stoddard and her team over at Whole Planet Foundation in their quest to improve the quality of life for the millions of people the foundation serves across the globe.
