Our goal is to pave a way for green fashion and to inspire local entrepreneurship in improvised regions of the world. Our profits go towards helping women in poverty start trade schools. We do this by distributing microloans to excited artisans, or enthusiastic individuals in these nations.
Our Mission/ Ending Poverty Mission
All of our profits go towards helping women in poverty start trade schools. We do this by distributing microloans to excited artisans or enthusiastic individuals in developing nations.
Why do we care about Microloans? After living in developing nations, founder Lexi Grisanti realized a large percentage of poverty stemmed from the lack of capital, resources, and education these countries had.
Our mission is to help create jobs for women in poverty. We do this by giving them a small loan to help them start a sustainable business of their dream.
- Work with excited individual living with poverty
- Create a business plan they are passionate about
- Buy necessary materials for the business with Sol&Co’s loan
- Teach the women how to create products, sell products, and run a sustainable business
- Allow LOCALS to have a fully functioning business in a developing nation.
Issues solved by ending poverty in the areas Sol&Co is based in: Ending human trafficking and sex slavery, ending violence and murder, ending starvation, increasing students attendance rates.
