If you’re a woman living in the poorest communities in the world, it doesn’t matter how smart or hard-working you are: it’s often much harder to earn a decent wage and participate in your country's economy.

Thanks to microsavings, women at the bottom of the world's economic ladder are finally gaining access to financial services that allow them to save and start income-generating businesses. But we need to make sure that our government continues to give women an equal shot at making an income that supports their family.

You can help women around the world access tools and resources they need to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.

Please urge your representative to co-sponsor the Microenterprise Empowerment & Job Creation Act (H.R.2524) and the Microfinance & Microenterprise Enhancement Act (S.2027) today!
