Trustee: Southwest Florida Women's Foundation

Bonita Springs, FL


Why are you interested in becoming a Trustee?
The Southwest Florida Women's Foundation supports female entrepreneurs in Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Glades, and Hendry counties by endorsing Kiva loans and providing online, self-paced classes through our Business Building Blocks (B3) for Women program. Fewer than 30% of businesses in SWFL are owned by women, and our programs will help even that ratio.
What is the mission of your organization?
The Southwest Florida Women's Foundation elevates women and girls by investing in programs that educate, boost security and entrepreneurship, and advocate from a woman's perspective.

Borrower Due Diligence

How will you decide who to endorse as a borrower? What due diligence will you conduct?
All prospective borrowers must complete our B3 for Women Training and follow the instructions at the end of the course. This training will prepare them for key aspects of business ownership, including but not limited to marketing, social media, business structure, and business planning. We work with each borrower before she submits her Kiva application to ensure she has a solid plan to get her loan funded and that her business is poised for success.
