Our vision is to help millions of people help themselves out of poverty by providing them with the opportunity to start small, self-sustainable businesses.
Far-reaching: Many women are stuck in poverty, struggling to support themselves and their families – we find and help them so they can build a sustainable life, irrespective of background and belief.
Attentive: We respect and listen to all, especially the individuals we help, they know what they need.
Small: We discover the point where a small intervention can make the biggest impact – we can take a chance with someone if it is small.
Consistent: We do what is right with conviction, sensitivity, enthusiasm and inventiveness.
Open: We are open and honest about success and failure, use time and funds effectively, value teamwork and accept there is always a better way.
How it Works
We provide loans and ongoing business training to female entrepreneurs. When they're able, they pay back the loan. We use this money to make more loans, to more women.
