Full Loan Amount
Funded by Backers
Funded by Able
Raven + Lily is an ethical fashion and lifestyle brand dedicated to empowering women through design. Raven + Lily was created to alleviate poverty among women by employing over 1,500 marginalized women to create beautiful and unique modern minimalist products.
Able’s loan model was exactly what we were looking for — we liked the opportunity to involve Backers, people who believe in our mission, to help fund a portion of the loan to help us empower women through design.
