The Black Woman relief Fund
In April 2020, Buy From a Black Woman administered a survey to check in on the community during the pandemic. What we learned is that over half of the businesses surveyed have seen their net income go down.
While Black Women are no strangers when it comes to creating adaptive strategies on was to pivot their business, we understand that sometimes that might not be enough.
So we are offering some relief.
The Black Woman Relief Fund will help aid 15 Black Women Business Owners.
