Why we LOVE ABLE:
They empower women in Africa: Your purchase of a fashionABLE product creates sustainable business in Africa. FashionABLE is committed to long-term solutions to fighting poverty, and their main focus is creating opportunities for vulnerable women formerly in the sex trade industry.
The purchase of an ABLE bag creates jobs, so that the women are not dependent upon charity, but instead are a vital part of a developing economy. And each ABLE style is named after one of the women ABLE works with.
FashionABLE's strategy is two-fold. They work with women to help them start small business cooperatives and they partner with and require manufacturers to also employ women with fair wages & fair hiring practices.
