We'd like to leave the world a nicer place than how we found it. And we suspect you might too.
Every time a past client refers a new client, we 'pay it forward' and invest $5 in another woman's business via Kiva, providing safe, affordable access to capital to help women around the world create better lives for themselves and their families.
We choose to invest in women, as women are proven more likely than men to share the rewards of microfinance and put their income back into their families and communities, driving illiteracy and mortality rates down and GDP up.

Oh yeah, and we save the odd rainforest running our paperless office, storing all client files using secure and reliable cloud technology. Not to mention the environmental consequences of reduced travel by us and you to a physical office. Just sayin'...
