The Foundation's visit to Israel began with a trip to Beersheva, to visit several female-owned enterprises aided by Latet Atid (to give a future.)  Latet provides each aspiring business owner (who must have a family income within +/- 5% of the Israeli poverty level) with a mentor (an experienced business consultant) along with a loan of up to $10,000.  Above, Irena poses with her home-based cosmetology office, which was paid for by the loan, along side Doron, a mentor.  Michal, also pictured above, a manicurist, plies her trade in a home office renovated via a Latet loan.
