Empowered By You was created with the unique vision of giving women high-quality Designer Lingerie that would serve as a potent tool of empowerment. Renata Black combined this already groundbreaking goal with an innovative business model, whereby 20 percent of profits go to the Seven Bar Foundation, a microfinance initiative also founded by Renata that empowers underprivileged women from around the world.
The Seven Bar Foundation distributes loans to outstanding microfinance institutions across the globe, including women in our own country, as well as in developing countries.
Here’s a breakdown of Seven Bar Foundation’s impact to date since its inception in 2010:
Seven Bar Foundation Microfinance Fund distribution by country
USA: $160,000 disbursed reaching 186 women
Mexico: $50,000 disbursed reaching 1,300 women
Guatemala: $100,000 disbursed reaching 135 women
India: $77,000 disbursed reaching 434 women
Sri Lanka: $15,000 disbursed reaching 85 women
Colombia: $45,000 disbursed reaching 160 women
Total Distribution: $447,000 reaching 2,300 women and approximately 4,600 (this is calculating a conservative 2 children per woman, though in many of these countries women take care of as many as 8 children in each household).
These entrepreneurs and businesswomen will eventually repay the loans once they reach a level of sustainability. With a global rate payback rate of 97 percent, this microfinance system is among the most effective and proven ways to help the world’s underprivileged women find their potential. Regardless, the Seven Bar Foundation makes every effort to ensure that this process is fair and reliable, receiving annual reports from each microfinance institution and testimonials from loan recipients.
With this in mind, you will feel great both inside and out wearing our comfortable Designer Lingerie, described as “the perfect everyday panty with patented flocking technology for a seamless second-skin fit.” To learn more about our products and our services, please email us at email@example.com.
