every pair purchased helps invest in a new entrepreneur.
Our model is built to invest 20% of net profits to support people in starting and growing their businesses. To date, the BANGS community has been able to invest in over 5,700 entrepreneurs across 75 countries including the US.
Why do you invest in people?
We believe that micro-finance is one very meaningful way to support people in providing for their families and creating the life of their dreams.
How do you choose people to invest in?
We hand-select entrepreneurs through our non-profit partner, Kiva.
Do the people you invest in have to pay you back?
When a loan is repaid, the money stays inside of Kiva's platform. We then re-invest that SAME loan with a new, different Kiva entrepreneur. So over time, one loan could cycle through many entrepreneurs - making your dollars more meaningful!
