WE's Mission

The mission of Women's Empowerment International is to give women the tools they need to work their way out of poverty. In partnership with nonprofit microfinance organizations, WE provides small, repayable business loans and services for women and supports other poverty-reduction strategies in places where WE can make a difference. WE's commitment is to education, to mutual communication, and to furthering the worldwide effort to alleviate poverty.


Microfinance, an effective poverty reduction strategy:

Microfinance programs offer poor people access to basic financial services, such as micro-loans, savings, training and micro-insurance, and is widely recognized as a just and sustainable solution to alleviating global poverty.

Small loans - often less than $100 - are provided to poor women to start or expand businesses. Unlike commercial loans, no collateral is required. Instead, women borrowers form themselves into groups of five, with each member guaranteeing the others' loans.
