The Micro Grant Program from Investing In Women

Below is from my friend Gazelle Simmons …. Dedicated to all the lady entrepreneurs out there:

The Micro Grant Program from Investing In Women was started to encourage more women to become financially independent.

Why is this important? Studies have shown that empowering women can decrease poverty, increase education, and promote equality. All of these create a society of happy healthy people! When women are in control of their finances they make smart decisions and spend more time focusing on family and fun.

It’s easy to empower women, just by talking about it with friends and acquaintances. We are asking that you take action by spreading the word.

Send an email, share this on your Facebook page, add it to a Linked In discussion, or include it in your next blog post. Tell people why YOU feel it is important to support women in business. You can share this message ….. or use your own words. Just make sure you share the website link too!

Want to do more? Each grant is for $500, so we only need 100 people to donate $5 each. That’s the price of one latte at your favorite coffee shop.
