Now more than ever, the future of our nation's families and children relies on the shoulders of women. Yet, it's no secret that women face inequalities in our current economic system.
According to the Women and Wealth study from Asset Funders Network, in order to foster a more socially and economically just society, we must remove the barriers that prevent women from building wealth; help them build assets, like home and business ownership; supplement college education costs; facilitate savings plans; and advocate for policy changes.
LiftFund is proud to be part of the solution for economic equality by providing women entrepreneurs, like Lihn Odom, access to capital to generate wealth trough business ownership. We know that when women succeed, they not only lift themselves and their families, but provide opportunity for other women in their communities.
As an experienced and passionate manicurist, Lihn took a leap of faith and opened Kosmo Nail & Hair Salon at a young age. LiftFund provided her with the capital she needed to open her doors, and supported her success as she expanded her business and introduced new services.
Today after eleven years in business, Linh is most proud to be able to provide a better future for her son Kane, and employ a team of over 30 talented technicians (pictured above) in her community.
“Without LiftFund, I would not have been able to expand,” reflected Lihn.
At LiftFund, we are committed to leveling the financial playing field and lifting women financially, so they have an opportunity to prosper.
Thank you for being part of our impactful movement!
