ONESEED AND THE GIRL EFFECT
The OneSeed Fund
The Girl Effect theory holds that that the future of development rests on the empowerment of women. Microfinance, the emerging field of making financial services scalable and accessible to the poor, is one way to invest in the power of women entrepreneurs.
How it Works
Ten percent of our total revenue is redirected through our microfinance field partners via the OneSeed Fund. Our partners extend this funding in small loans averaging $250 to women in need of capital throughout Nepal and Chile. By providing this capital to our partners at no interest, we allow them to expand their operations to reach more women in need of financial services.
