Our bonds are issued in multiples of $1,000 for a term of 1, 2, 3 or 5 years (selected by the investor). They carry a zero % rate of interest, which allows us to make zero-interest loans to our microfinance partners, enabling them to provide critical education and health services to their female borrowers. In lieu of interest, we give our investors a Social Dividend - a report about the ten women funded by each bond. We repay the principal to our investors when the bonds mature, unless they decide to reinvest in additional businesses. If you reside in a state where our Sister Bonds® investment product is registered or exempt from registration, indicated on the map in blue, you are eligible to invest! Scroll down to learn more.
Our bonds are being offered only in eligible states and in conjunction with our Sister Bonds® Investment Notes Prospectus which is available below. If you would like to invest, please complete an online pledge form via the link below and we will add you to our waiting list. We will contact you with an application form when we are ready to issue the bonds. Thank you for your interest! Each bond funds 10 women’s business loans impacting over 50 lives for each year of investment!
