We all want to make a difference in the lives of others, knowing our time on earth isn’t just about ourselves, but rather something much bigger. It was through this belief that cabi’s Founders carefully crafted our business to be all about serving others. They believed the more it included the transformative power of women helping women, the more these connections would stir a ripple of generosity that would extend far beyond the cabi Experience.

Today, cabi’s efforts to impact women have spread well beyond living rooms, delivering transformation into the lives of women in the developing world, giving them a message of hope and freedom through entrepreneurship.

As each cabi Stylist starts her business, we fund a small business loan for a woman building her own business, making them “Sister Entrepreneurs”, growing their businesses together.

We proudly launched our W.E. are cabi Program in 2015, a one-for-one microlending program that connects our cabi entrepreneurs to entrepreneurs in the developing world through Opportunity International, a global nonprofit microfinance organization. As each cabi Stylist starts her business, we fund a small business loan for a woman building her own business, making them “sister entrepreneurs,” growing their businesses together.

W.E. are cabi is the manifestation of our desire to “do well in order to do good.” This sentiment led Carol Anderson to create The Heart of cabi Foundation in 2005 as a meaningful counterpart to the opportunity we provide our women. “Cabi Stylists have the opportunity to realize their dreams through starting a business to support a better financial future for their families and communities,” said cabi Chief Executive Officer Lynne Coté. “We are so proud to extend that transformational opportunity to women around the world.”

For women living in the endless cycle of poverty, a small business loan is an open door to a new life. In keeping with our training philosophy for cabi Stylists, our Opportunity International entrepreneurs receive tools and training in leadership, marketing, and sales, and have the relational support of mentors and peers, as we believe it is in community that women reach their greatest potential for success.

“Women are such relational creatures, and when they leverage community bonds as they build a business, those relationships can transform lives,” said cabi Founder, President, and Chief Culture Officer Kimberly Inskeep. “This is as true for cabi Stylists as it is for the woman opening a dress shop in Rwanda and this is how one woman can ultimately transform an entire community for generations to come.”

As each loan is repaid, it ultimately turns into four or five loans over time, greatly extending the impact of each cabi Stylist. Beyond W.E. are cabi, small business loans are also funded through our Make a Change Program, where clients round their orders up to the nearest dollar or pound and donate the change. Through unified efforts in our community, each year we support the businesses of thousands of women all over the world.

At cabi, we do not seek success for success’ sake, but rather we seek success because it enables us to passionately care for the well-being of women across the globe—to do well in order to do good. Our living legacy is to be women entrepreneurs helping women entrepreneurs. United around that purpose, together we can feel the deep fulfillment of being difference-makers for women all over the world.
