THE POWER OF MICRO FINANCE FOR EMPOWERMENT!
As part of MLE business model, 10% of the profit on each garment sold will go directly to a Microfinance project for the empowerment of women entrepreneurs in Africa. These micro loans are finalized to generate sustainable additional income and improve a family’s quality of life. No donation, but PURE EMPOWERMENT!
We are very excited to be collaborating with SPARKLES.LU, a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to help women by financing the creation or the expansion of their business activities with a 0% interest micro loan.
FATUMA FROM KENYA
$200 financed by MLE Empowering Apparel in APRIL 2016 thru our partnership with SPARKLES.LU
Fatima lives in Likoni, Kenya. She is married with five children. Four of them attend school. She owns a house that has neither electricity nor piped water. Her greatest monthly expense is school fees and water. She operated a cashew business, selling at the market to her neighbors and passerby. She has been doing this for the past 10 years. She faces major challenges of seasonality in her business. With this 200 USD loan, she wants to purchase seven sacks of cashew nuts. This will help her to boost her business.
