Often people are born into impoverished communities without the resources to make a living. This results in a vicious cycle generation after generation where young girls and women are sadly forced into prostitution to support themselves and their families. The owner of ABLE saw this heartbreaking cycle of poverty first hand while living in Ethiopia and started a hand-woven scarf business as an opportunity for these women to earn a living with dignity. ABLE has grown to include beautiful jewelry, denim, bags, apparel, and shoes that add to your style while investing in women and breaking the cycle by giving them jobs they can be proud of. It feels so good to purchase products knowing that you are impacting a community in a big way… when you look good and do good at the same time, it’s a double win.
I love my denim jacket from ABLE! I love even more that it’s made by women locally & globally who have overcome extraordinary circumstances… from addiction to homelessness to prostitution.

“In my experience, poor people are the world’s greatest entrepreneurs. Every day, they must innovate in order to survive. They remain poor because they do not have the opportunities to turn their creativity into sustainable income.”
