In an office filled with smart, inspiring women, led by two awesome female co-founders, it probably doesn’t come as a surprise that we love supporting women entrepreneurs. Lucky for us, one of our favorite skincare brands, Dermalogica®, makes it incredibly easy to make a meaningful difference for aspiring business women around the world. Read on to find out how you can help.
In January 2011, Dermalogica founder Jane Wurwand teamed up with Kiva, the non-profit microfinance organization, to launch FITE, which stands for Financial Independence Through Entrepreneurship. The goal of FITE is to support female entrepreneurship in developing countries by providing access to small loans—loans that will not only benefit the women’s lives but, also their local economies.
There are two ways you can help. The first is by visiting joinfite.org and funding a loan as small as $25. You’ll have a chance to choose a borrower based on their story and proposal. You choose the amount you’d like to lend and agree to all the terms of repayment up front. The other way to get involved is even simpler. Buy your favorite Dermalogica® products with the FITE logo on the package—including our favorites, Daily Microfoliant® and Precleanse, from the Birchbox shop. Find the code inside and visit joinfite.org to redeem and Dermalogica® will contribute to a loan on your behalf. It’s really that easy to help a woman start her own business.
