BENEFITING: Grameen America
Far West Capital is building our bottom line and a better world at the same time. We are a trailblazing organization who realizes the critical opportunity to create shared value between business and society. Through our Social Impact Program, “Far Reaching,” our company demonstrates our TEAM commitment to the positive power a company has when it combines profit and purpose, living and giving, consumption and contribution, and leverages the might of the private sector to build a world we want to leave behind.
Far West Capital’s Social Impact Initiative, Far Reaching is excited to launch its first fundraising campaign with Grameen America, a microfinance organization that recently expanded to serve low-income women entrepreneurs in the Austin community. They offer affordable credit, training and support to help women build small businesses and create better lives for their families. Founded by Nobel Peace Prize recipient Muhammad Yunus, Grameen America uses a unique group lending model to transform communities and fight poverty in the United States.
In an effort to further our mission of creating as many entrepreneurial success stories as humanly possible, we are committed to raising $100,000 by the end of 2014 to serve the Austin community of women entrepreneurs participating in Grameen America.
