Self -Help International

Seven local Hooters Girls are raising funds in support of Self-Help International‘s work to empower women from August 9th- 15th. Newly crowned 2021 Miss Hooters Gianna Tulio (Boca Raton), Danielle Magda (Sarasota), Sloan Miavitz (Sarasota), Madison Novo (Weston), Lisamarie Johnson (Weston), Alyssa Duckett (Fort Myers), and Briana Smith (2019 Miss Hooters International) are participating in the fundraising efforts to invest in women business owners trying to start and grow their own business and help them lift up their families communities in the process.  South Florida Hooters will match up to $10,000 raised. 

Give a Hoot for Self-Help International by helping women in Ghana and Nicaragua start and grow their own businesses. Self Help works to support women business owners in rural communities by providing low-interest micro-loans. Oftentimes, women in these small communities are not eligible to receive loans through formal banks and sometimes end up taking loans with predatory lenders. 

By having access to capital through Self-Help, women are able to start and invest in their businesses.  In tandem with providing micro-loans, Self Help offers training sessions to help women improve their business practices so they can grow their incomes.  Women are powerful agents for change, and when you invest in them, they are able to lift up their families and communities.  Economically empowered women empower others.  With the economic uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s crucial to help women invest in their businesses.  For more information on Self-Help International visit Self Help International
