I believe that women are agents of change in the world. When a woman is given the tools she needs to succeed, she creates a ripple effect of positive change for herself, her family and her community.
This is why I have decided to partner with FITE, a global empowerment platform powered by Kiva.org, the non-profit leader in microfinance, that is designed to foster Financial Independence Through Entrepreneurship. Their mission is to provide women entrepreneurs access to small loans that will help them start or grow a business. Seems simple, right?
FITE’s goal is to put at least 25,000 women entrepreneurs in the developing world on their path to financial independence within the next two years. Lending to women increases the odds of improved health, education and welfare for all household members.
SheBrand is leading a lending team called Team SheBrand. You can join Team SheBrand and contribute to a microloan without actually lending any of your own money!
Here’s how it works: The world’s preeminent skincare brand, Dermalogica, has committed to lending the money, but will do this only with your voice as a way to “unlock” the donation. All you have to do is click this link www.joinFITE.org/shebrand and follow a few easy steps to unlock the donation.
When you redeem your code, please select Team SheBrand from the dropdown list in Step 3.
Seriously, that’s it. Together, we’ll be changing women’s lives around the world. It’s a wicked cool way to make a difference!
I am so honored to partner with FITE on this worthy cause and so grateful to YOU for your participation. All you have to do is click this link, www.joinfite.org/shebrand, to invest in a woman so she can improve her life and the lives of those around her.
Thank you for stepping up.
