26 women around the world shared an inspiring sentence on the theme of "A Woman's Investment" during October.
Each woman has something unique to say to you.
If you are inspired, please consider donating $10 to help me raise money for a microfinance project in the Philippines, and by sharing this on your blog, Twitter or elsewhere. You can help me raise money for a group of women living in poverty to change their lives, and the lives of those around them.

"We would like to INVEST
in you." seven words that can change a life." INVESTING in women's potential is personal for me. As a young mother, a crushing family crisis halted all dreams. For reasons I can't explain, a man named Bruce showed up on my path to believe in my potential. This was his message to me, "My wife and I planned to buy some money market certificates, but instead we would like to INVEST in you." These seven words and the helping hand-up that came with them, changed the whole direction of my life. Debbe Kennedy Founder, President, and CEO Global Dialogue Center and Leadership Solutions Companies. Author, Putting Our Differences to Work
The first business I started
was just as terrifying and exhilarating as having my first child. The second business was an utter joy to launch and still gives me pleasure years after its inception.

Phaedra Boinodiris, CEO, WomenGamers.Com USA

a developing nation receives a microloan to start a small business, she will pay the loan back first and then take her profits and invest in things like a school for the children of the community or perhaps a well for everyone in her village to have clean water. Her investments help not just her own family, but everyone in her social circle. Bonnie McEwan Owner, Make Waves: Impact Marketing for Nonprofits USA
When a woman invests in
her own small business, she starts a snowball that will improve the life of her family, her community and the world. Linda Griffin Founder ClearWind LLC

Philippines but I imagine that if I could visit and research and compare the soft and hard infrastructure available to would-be women entrepreneurs in Melbourne with that of Manila, my report would show, respectively, an embarrassment of riches and a dearth of opportunities. I feel grateful to be able to redistribute some of these riches, in the form of opportunities, to these women. Danielle Johnston. Business Director, Committee for Melbourne, Australia
