Kiva Lending Team: Global Goods Partners
We loan because...
Global Goods Partners is all about serving women entrepreneurs. We believe that lasting change begins at the community level. When women control their own resources, it becomes possible for families and communities to get out of poverty, and to gain access to education and health care.
Global Goods Partners is a non-profit that sells fair trade, handmade products made by women artisans in Asia, Africa and the Americas through our website www.globalgoodspartners.org. We strengthen women-led producer groups as a means of alleviating poverty and providing sustainable livelihoods in some of the poorest communities. We create economic opportunity by offering design direction, generating demand, and bringing to the U.S. market the unique, handmade, and quality fashion accessories that our more than 40 partners in 20 countries produce. Rather than traditional notions of charity, we believe that if given the proper infrastructure and support, women can forge a path out of poverty for themselves and their children.
