A social enterprise uses their business to solve a social or environmental problem. Think of it as halfway between an non-profit and a traditional business.
Let’s use one of our suppliers as an example. @SittiSoap makes amazing olive oil soaps. They use their soap business as a way to provide employment to women refugees in the Middle East. This provides dignity, hope and empowerment to these women. So, while the soaps are among the best on the market, the primary objective of the company is to empower these women refugees.
