Women’s Empowerment International is a volunteer run micro-finance organization supporting women who are living in poverty. They partner with local banks in Mexico, Honduras and Ghana by loaning money to women who can then start a businesses. Micro-finance has proven to be a great path towards self-sufficiency since recipients aren’t just given a hand out, but the tools to be their own heroes by lifting themselves, their family and sometimes their community out of poverty.
