Welcome to our first in a new series of newsletters. Through this series, we want to share with you the inspiring stories of our clients and donors as well as information about upcoming events that might interest you.
March 8th is International Women's Day which makes this a great time to be sending our first newsletter.
Worldwide, 70% of those living on less than $2 a day are women and girls, according to UN Women. The greatest challenge they face is not lack of knowledge or motivation, but a lack of access to financial services and training to launch businesses, support their families, educate their children and strengthen their local economies.
Thanks to the support of Canadians like you, we can provide those opportunities to women around the world. Women like Nubia (featured above) who dreams of expanding her business to provide jobs for her whole family. Read more about Nubia's story here.
Thank you for supporting the dreams of clients like Nubia! We're so glad you're with us on this journey!
