The very core of Arrow’s work — the reason why the platform was built — is job creation. A lack of stable income is the single largest contributor to systemic poverty around the globe. No stable income means no way to put food on the table, pay medical bills, or send your kids to school. There’s simply no way to take care of your family without consistent income. The path to consistent income is a steady job, which in most places around the globe, comes from a small business. This is our contention at Arrow: that investing in proven job creators is the single greatest contribution we can make to our generation. We can (and we are) helping to change the lives of men, women, and children across the world by pursuing socially-conscious business with people at the center.
