“There are over 8.6 million women-owned businesses in the United States generating over $1.3 trillion in revenues and employing nearly 7.8 million people.”
“Women’s loan approval ratings are 15-20% lower than men and on average, their credit score is 40 points lower than men.”
“This fall, Project Eve is partnering with Accion East and Online Women’s Program to offer our community an exciting way to support and shop women-owned business with its Shop the Movement Campaign. From November 12 through December 9, Project Eve will host an online shopping event called “Shop the Movement” where women-owned companies will sell their goods and services to the over 1 million members of the Project Eve community. We are asking Shop the Movement participants to pledge 5% of their profits towards this worthy cause. In return, Project Eve will also pledge 5% of all profits earned during the period.”
“Our goal is to help raise awareness of women-owned businesses and donate the funds necessary to support this worthy cause.”
I’m shopping the movement. Will you?
