We empower women now to improve their economic condition, hoping to have better lives for their children’s future.
In his book Creating a World Without Poverty, Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus wrote about “social businesses” — businesses that attempt to make social impact first and make a profit second.
Two Neighbors is a social business. In addition to inspiring peace and becoming profitable, it is designed to improve social conditions of those involved in it. We empower women now to improve their economic condition, hoping to have better lives for their children’s future.
We pay all women by fair wage standards. When additional profits are earned, these are returned to the women’s cooperatives, for improving basic standards of living. A portion is retained to grow the company and repay the investors.
Once Two Neighbors becomes a sustainable company with steady profits, ownership will be passed on to the women involved.
