An Enactus team in Puerto Rico saw a way to improve the lives of impoverished girls and their families. The team taught girls in their community to make beautiful jewelry from old t-shirts and sell it to help support their families. The project empowered 31 parents to become entrepreneurs and resulted in $6,500 in supplemental income for the girls and their families. Not only did they have a great economic impact, but they also recycled more than 650 shirts.
