“Women reinvest 90% of every dollar earned into their families’ education, health and nutrition”
– Harvard Business Review, 2013
Many factors contribute to keeping people living in poverty, preventing the poorest from being able to improve their lives without help. Survival is doubly difficult for women who bear the brunt of family responsibilities, making it hard to seek employment. Women and girls have little opportunity to help support themselves and their families and consequently make up 70% of the world’s poor.
