The proceeds thus received will fund the “microlending” programmes of Whole Planet Foundation whereby alleviating poverty of women entrepreneurs across the U.S. and “76 other countries”. In Debo Nova’s words before the show:
“In 2015, I was happy to perform at the Whole Planet Foundation pre-GRAMMY Party in Los Angeles and learned how Whole Planet Foundation empowers women and families in Costa Rica and around the world. This year, I am excited to visit local women entrepreneurs near my home in Guanacaste who are funded through their microfinance partner, Asociacion Costa Rica Grameen.  These women are strong and resilient especially during the challenges of the pandemic.  They have superpowers like in my song ‘Superpoderes’”.
While, talking about collaborating with Whole Planet Foundation, Andy Allo added:
“I have supported Whole Planet Foundation since 2014 and with some fun and organic performances at their Pre-Grammy parties and in Whole Foods Market stores, pre-pandemic of course. Soon after I started supporting, the Foundation started funding microcredit in Cameroon where I was born. It has since funded many women entrepreneurs like Margaret, a local weaver who makes raffia mats and dolls, and their families in Cameroon”.
