Global Girlfriend is a fair trade boutique that helps women worldwide achieve a sustainable income. The online store sells a plentiful collection of fair trade and artisan-made apparel and accessories, while they also support a variety of causes through donations of 5-30% of the proceeds depending on the product.

Founded in 2003 by Stacey Edgar, Global Girlfriend seeks to enable the growth of rural African women in business in developing nations. Since 2003, Global Girlfriend has grown substantially and inspired a book of the same name by founder Stacey Edgar.

Global Girlfriend also offers the opportunity to gift a business grant for a rural African woman, which provides skills training and a business startup grant in order for her to start a venture of her own.
