What is FITE
? In a nutshell, FITE is a platform powered by Kiva.org
that is designed to provide financial independence through entrepreneurship (FITE) for women in the developing world. FITE provides women entrepreneurs access to small loans that help them to start or grow their own business, and to educate the public about the benefits of empowering such women.
We as beauty lovers have been given the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of women around the world, just by continuing to purchase our favourite skincare products from FITE founding partner Dermalogica
. Australian beauty bloggers have signed up with FITE to create our own team, “Australian Beauty Bloggers
” for bloggers and readers to contribute towards.
How does it work? It’s pretty simple. The five best selling Dermalogica products (Daily Microfoliant, PreCleanse, Skin Hydrating Booster, Total Eye Care and Intensive Eye Repair) now come in FITE themed packaging that contain a special promotional code that gives you $1 USD to loan.
You then take this code to the FITE site
and click on the “REDEEM CODE
” link where you will be prompted to enter the code (you may enter up to 3 at once). You can then select which type of entrepreneur you wish to support, and where in the world they will be located. After filling in your details, and if you wish to have your donation marked against the Aussie Beauty Bloggers team, select “Australian Beauty Bloggers” under the team listing (these are in alphabetical order) and click ‘redeem code’. After that, FITE takes a week or so to gather together the microloans actioned and will send out an email with the details of the women and organisation/s your microloan is benefiting. Alternatively, you also have the option of lending a microloan directly
to an entrepreneur for as little as $25 USD. This whole process takes very little time and effort and can make the world of difference in the life of women across the globe. Any other Australian beauty bloggers who would like to join the team, please email me
and I’ll add you as soon as possible. Let’s all get on board and help support our fellow women.
