For many women throughout the world, life is a constant struggle of poverty and hardship.
Poor economic situations lead to malnutrition, illiteracy, and poor health. With each generation, these problems become more sever. Through access to microfinance (financial services like microcredit loans, insurance, savings, and other products), women can overcome poverty and provide a better life for their families.
Shabby Apple not only loves to help women dress their best, but also help women live. We are supporting the fight against global poverty by partnering with Accion. A non-profit organization, Accion has the mission of giving people the financial tools they need to work their way out of poverty. Shabby Apple Donates 5% of its sales to support work with 62 microfinance institutions in 31 countries worldwide.
So, the next time you purchase a Shabby Apple dress, remember that your not just helping Shabby Apple thrive, but thousands of women around the world!
