Since 1984, Working Capital for Community Needs (WCCN)–formerly the Wisconsin Coordinating Council on Nicaragua–has worked to establish healthy, equitable relations between the North and South. In the 1960s, Wisconsin and Nicaragua became official sister states under the Alliance for Progress.
It was this sister state relationship that lead to Wisconsin citizens, opposed to the US government’s interference in Nicaragua, to come together to express their opposition. In the early years, WCCN’s activities centered on political activism and material aid. It began lending in Nicaragua in 1991, later expanding to Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador, Peru, and Ecuador in 2008. For more information, visit
