Empowered women are a force to be reckoned with, and that’s exactly why EBY and Akola teamed up — we’re even stronger together. We’re women on a mission to transform lives and communities.

EBY stands for Empowered By You. EBY reinterprets seduction for empowerment, giving 10% of proceeds to women entrepreneurs around the world through microfinance loans.

With a loan as small at $90, a woman can transform her life, lift her family out of poverty and build a stronger community.
