In honor of International Women’s Day, Nu Skin announced a donation of almost $100,000 to MCE Social Capital, a nonprofit impact investing firm that creates economic opportunities focused on helping women and the environment.
“Nu Skin’s mission has always been focused on empowering people to improve lives, a focus that we share with MCE Social Capital,” said Ruth Todd, Nu Skin Senior Vice President and vice chair of the Nu Skin Force for Good Foundation. “As a company with thousands of entrepreneurial women, we love opportunities to help empower other female entrepreneurs throughout the world. We are thrilled to support MCE in its efforts to provide microloans to women, particularly in rural areas of developing countries, who do not otherwise have easy access to financial services.”
Nu Skin’s donation will allow MCE to help small businesses in the agriculture value chain while creating sustainable jobs in rural areas and strengthening climate resilience. To date, MCE’s efforts have benefited more than nine million people, 73% of whom are women.
