Recently, designer Rebecca Minkoff and Jessica Alba, actress and founder of Honest Company, traveled to Guatemala and visited FINCA clients to source hand-made textiles for a collaboration to benefit women entrepreneurs in a major way. The duo have launched the RMxHonest handbag capsule collection, which features the hand-woven fabrics made by the low-income women artisans that FINCA supports.
FINCA’s loans improve the lives of women entrepreneurs.
“Having the loan changes the power factor so that they are now the providers for the household,” Rebecca Minkoff says. “It changes the dynamic and makes them empowered as women.”
