With every purchase you make, you are alleviating poverty around the globe and creating sustainable jobs for primarily women entrepreneurs in developing countries worldwide.
You can't lift somebody out of poverty, they must lift themselves. Together, we help empower Entrepreneurs, mostly in developing countries, have access to micro-loans to responsibly learn how to create a business with capital that besides would be unavailable. Primarily women business owners take profits and reinvest it in their family; so they can put more into education, healthcare, housing, nutrition, rehab, and welfare. Every meal makes a difference, and every investment you help donate goes a long way towards helping this family enrichment. It's these improvements to the children that is going to help this family escape poverty. A woman might not be able to escape poverty on her own trying to feed five kids but if these kids have better education and nutrition the chances that they can escape poverty is greatly increased.
