Esperanza International's "Microcredit Plus" program is focused on alleviating poverty throughout the Dominican Republic in a sustainable way. A significant part of their programming focuses on empowering women entrepreneurs with the resources, training, and crucial services needed to start and grow their own enterprises. By doing so, Esperanza is breaking the cycle of poverty for entire communities instead of just treating the symptoms. Good Returns' interest-free capital is a uniquely valuable resource that enables Esperanza to reach more associates and preserve its financial resources for the purpose of providing additional resources to the communities they serve.
Soap Hope's purpose is to end poverty for women. Since its inception in 2008, it has cycled 100% of the profits of the business through Good Returns each year - specifically aimed at providing women entrepreneurs with the resources they need to overcome poverty, provide for their families, and become leaders in their community. Soap Hope understands that women are the key to ending global poverty and are proud to partner with Good Returns to make meaningful strides towards ensuring that women have equal opportunity and equal resources.
United. Esperanza, Soap Hope and Good Returns know the facts. If you want to end global poverty, it starts with providing women with equal access and equal opportunity to start their own businesses. When women rise, entire communities rise. This isn't unique to certain parts of the world or certain communities of women, it's a fact everywhere. Good Returns set out to tell this story through the perspective of Soap Hope and Esperanza
Want children to have more access to education? Empower Women. Want more financial resources to flow into underserved communities? Empower women. Want community health to increase? Empower women. Want population growth to decline? Empower women.
Good Returns set out to use this Cycle to create a chapter that highlights the strength, perseverance, and importance of all women in every community, especially those facing poverty. Women are United by a common thread - building a better future for those around them.
