FINCA International is a global microfinance network providing financial services to the world's lowest-
income entrepreneurs. For over 25 years, they have been creating pathways out of poverty for people—
mostly women— struggling to survive on less than $2 per day.
Through its network of 21 programs in Africa, Eurasia, The Greater Middle East and Latin America, more
than 730,000 low-income entrepreneurs can access small loans and other services they need to create
jobs, build assets and improve their standard of living.
By simply donating five percent of sales to FINCA, globLove contributes to the success of small
businesses run by women in developing countries, enabling them to take their futures in their own
hands and empowering them through the freedom that comes with opportunity. www.finca.org
Village Banking programs break the vicious cycle of poverty. Without credit, low-income people may
work hard but stay poor because of a lack of opportunity and capital.
By participating in a Village Banking group, mothers can better care for their children. As nutrition and
health improve, women then invest income in education, followed by home improvements.
Having a steady income and a savings account raises a woman’s self-esteem and her status, even in a
society where women are consistently treated as second-class citizens. A woman in Uganda told us how
the bank had affected her, "My knees are softer," she said. "I used to have to kneel to my husband to
beg for money for every little thing. Now I don’t have to kneel much, so my knees are softer."
