Helping South African women lift themselves
out of poverty
We partner with entrepreneurial women in rural South Africa who work hard to improve their lives and that of their children.
Our branches are located and staffed by the communities they serve.
When the loans are paid back, they are recycled to assist other entrepreneurs. Every donation is leveraged to help as many people as possible.

SURVIVE ON $2 A DAY
ADULTS ARE UNEMPLOYED
We respond to these alarming statistics by partnering with women who are motivated and capable of bringing change to their community.
When one woman is empowered to make her dream a reality and become more self-sufficient, she pulls others up with her. Repaid loans are reinvested back into the same communities time and again. Our approach ensures that funds, time, and energy invested into communities brings lasting impact to the entrepreneurs, their families, and their neighbors.
