The Working World

New York, New York

The Working World puts finance in the hands of working people without making them put down collateral or take on the burden of debt that may threaten their well-being. They do this by using applied research to promote a more inclusive form of ownership — businesses that are collectively run and owned by their workers and community — and tying loan returns to project success to minimize risk, both for their fund and the enterprises they help thrive.
