As the year slowly comes to an end,  we can’t help but reflect on all the beautiful people we met who have shown us so much love and support. We share the heartfelt gratitude from all the resilient women and girls who are fighting and striving to overcome so many barriers but have been recipients of all your love and generous contributions.

It is however quite obvious that there is increased political instability that affects us all collective socially and economically and while the world trends shift gears towards as some might say a more conservative approach in Europe and the US alike, it is easy to feel disheartened. We would like to request you all to continue to be optimistic, as we  all know that change is inevitable, we also know that if we all play our role to change the narrative and create a more positive world together. I can’t promise that it will be without challenges,  it might even be hard but in the end it will be worth the effort as we will have done our bit towards contributing to see the change we want.

Let’s continue to support and inspires each other to become the best version of ourselves in 2017!

Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year!

Hej everyone.. trust you are all doing great!!

We are soo excited this weekend.. whoooop whoop ..  We have raised funds for 12 women businesses…okay I’m taking a chill pill lool I know it sounds so small he he heeee

Let me share…What started as a tiny itsy bitsy support to women entrepreneurs from underprivileged communities  with 1 loan and  has grown to 12…how did we do this? We at GWSE wanted to find a platform that restores dignity in the giving process and also uses a sustainable approach to giving so we chose Kiva and naturally went on to set up a GWSE team. (https://www.kiva.org/team/global_women_social_enterprise) We started with only 1 small loan of 25$ in May and now we have funded 12 women businesses. This is amazing!! why you might ask?? i know some of you are like why are they excited  its only 12 loans lool… oh marn we are excited because we have supported women micro-businesses who would naturally not gain access to finances, they would have gotten 0 ZERO…definitely not in traditional banking:o( and this in my view is a much  better approach compared to donations where you don’t know where it goes and half the time the people in need see and or get nothing/ nada.. plus this approach of supporting a biz is much more sustainable and long-term because she can continue to grow her biz. The famous saying give a man a fish you feed him for a day.. teach him how to fish you feed him for life.. That been said.. this works!

How does it work.. you LEND and not donate( don’t mix the two pliz.. OUR team is more like a crowdfunding approach ) this makes the women entrepreneurs accountable and responsible which we have seen inspires them to use the funds in income generating businesses.

So how does it work?

Step 1: Join can our team( always better to work together)  ..https://www.kiva.org/team/global_women_social_enterprise

Step 2: select a women entrepreneur ( believe it or not majority of people in poverty are women and girls  so they need your support!!) Also over 80% of women and girls are the most vulnerable without ways to sustain themselves making them a target for human traffickers at the least.. so basically they need to have something to do in order to make ends meet and to support their families… i call funding a womns Biz a PREVENTION technique and anyways overall women tend to almost always support not only their families but their communities #ReaLTalK ! The good news is we can change those stats one woman at a time.

Step 3: LEND as little as 25$/170DKK towards a woman’s business( we like to support entrepreneurship no matter how small… after all small things can become big)

Step4: Wait for repayment( in my experience they always pay so no worries here)

Step5: receive repayment then you can 1:re-lend to a new woman, 2: donate to Kiva,or 3 : collect your money and go treat someone or spoil yourself:o)

Step 6: Chill  and enjoy the feeling of uplifting a women and her family! you have just changed the stats.

That’s all its easy breezy and super cool!!

So think about it, read about it and get as much info about micro-lending or challenges women face to accessing finances and then come on board and Join US !! https://www.kiva.org/team/global_women_social_enterprise

Have a great weekend.

Be Blessed
