Happy Holidays from the #FSquad
December 14, 2015
This season, Faulhaber Communications is celebrating the holidays in a big way. From our FAULHABER family feast to festive games, every season we come together to reflect on the year and remember what is truly important to us as a team. One cause that is especially close to our hearts is Financial Independence Through Entrepreneurship or FITE.
FITE offers women microloans through the website Kiva.org to help them start or grow their own businesses, helping themselves and their communities to become financially independent. FITE is well on its way to accomplishing the goal of empowering 25,000 women globally.
FAULHABER FITES because we believe all women should have the resources to make their dreams a reality. Here are just a few of the reasons why we FITE:
-Women perform 66 per cent of the world’s work yet earn only 10 per cent of the world’s income
-Women produce 50 per cent of the world’s food yet own only 1 per cent of the world’s property
-70 per cent of 1 billion people in extreme poverty are women
-Fewer than 3 per cent of the CEOs of Fortune Global 500 companies are women and in developing countries fewer than 9 out of 10 women-owned businesses have access to loans
We are also launching our first-ever #elFSquad contest and giving away $1,000 worth of swag from our FShop! Head over to our Instagram, follow us and tag a friend in one of our 6 Happy Holiday images to enter.
This holiday season, we are proud to come together and support FITE. We invite you to do the same. Wishing you the happiest of holidays,
Xoxo The #FSquad
