“It is the personal thoughtfulness, the warm human awareness, the reaching out of the self to one’s fellow man that makes giving worthy of the Christmas spirit.”
~ Isabel Currier.
[dropcap2]I[/dropcap2]t seems fitting for this holiday season to introduce a wonderful program in association with Kiva.org and Dermalogica that helps women around the world by micro-lending. Women are traditionally more likely to be denied a loan by a bank and often face high levels of financial discrimination. In fact, more than 70% of people who live below the poverty line are women.* These micro-loans help women start their own businesses, support their families and build their communities.
You can choose to give a small amount to help a fledgling female entrepreneur or you can simply learn about these women and choose a female who will receive a $1 from your visit to the site. We are all, as women, interconnected, and the strength of women as entrepreneurs and captains of our own destinies lies in our ability to help each other. Every little bit helps.
Happy Holidays from all of us at Move LifeStyle!
