HOW IT WORKS
Every month, we set aside 10% of profits to invest into Kiva micro-loans for women.
These micro-loans equip female entrepreneurs around the world with the opportunity & capital they need to pursue their dreams.
As loans are repaid, we reinvest those funds back into micro-loans for women, so the same dollar touches more lives.
In 2018, we helped fund loans for 10 women in eight countries around the world.
Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 and based in San Francisco, with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Kiva celebrates and supports people looking to create a better future for themselves, their families and their communities. Over 3.1 million people in 81 countries have received loans through Kiva.
Wabi-Sabi® Botanicals collaborates with Kiva to empower women and create partnerships of mutual dignity. Women around the world have much less access to fair and affordable credit for their businesses or basic needs. While 46% of men around the world report having access to formal financial services, the figure is only 27% for women. When a Kiva loan enables a woman to start or grow her business and create opportunity for themselves, it creates a ripple effect that has a profound effect on her family and entire community.
