During a recent interview with Good Morning America, Jennifer expressed why she felt it was important to her to partner with Grameen America. 

‘When you get a little bit older, you understand the meaning behind things and you’ve seen enough and you’ve had your own struggle, and seen enough of injustices,’ she expressed. 

‘I just feel like this country needs more love and positivity, and people who want to do good things, and are not fighting against each other and who are just giving each other a hand up. That’s important to me,’ the businesswoman added. 

The nonprofit organization is based out of New York City, and was founded to provide financial assistance and education to women in poverty who want to build small businesses. 

In partnering with Jennifer, Grameen America will help achieve their, ‘goal of providing 600,000 Latina entrepreneurs with $14 billion in loan capital,’ reported Forbes.

The talented performer also informed Forbes, ‘It feels like the only thing holding the Latino community back is financial literacy and access to capital.’ 

She also expressed her gratitude to the organization, stating, ‘Being Latino in this country has always been a matter of pride for me. I am humbled and beyond grateful to partner with Grameen America. We’re building pathways to employment and leadership opportunities,’ according to the Grameen America website. 

‘There’s so much strength in this community and we’re harnessing that. This partnership will create equality, inclusivity and opportunity for Latina women in business.’ 

Before attending the special event on Saturday, Jennifer has been settling back into her busy schedule after returning from a second honeymoon in Italy. Last month in August, she said ‘I do’ to Ben Affleck during a lavish wedding ceremony at the actor’s 87-acre Georgia mansion. 

The two held a more intimate ceremony in July at A Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas.
