Pay it Forward Loans for Women’s Empowerment via Lisa Stirrett Gallery

As many of you know, Lisa and the team at the Studio believe in giving back. That’s why they started the Pay It Forward Loan program in partnership with the nonprofit 501(c)3 organization Walk in the Light International so these micro-finance loans could help women in Burkina Faso, West Africa. You can make a tax-deductible donation to contribute to or fully fund a loan to one of these women.

Lisa is headed back to Burkina Faso, West Africa to work with her girls and their businesses. She leaves in a week. She is offering artwork for every fully funded loan. If you would like to help or want one of these women and receive one of her works of art in exchange, please contact Lisa by June 15th.

Here is a brief summary of each woman and their loan request. You can then click through to the ones that tug at your heart and select the artwork that you want. Did you know there are over 20 groups who have been funded and we have a 100% payback rate. These loans are changing lives. There are no admin fees and no interest. These loans keep rolling over and help fund additional woman-owned businesses. Your money truly keeps on giving.
