You gotta love Natalie Portman. Not only is she in Star Wars, but she is in a league of her own in Hollywood; very understated; very authentic; very smart. According to Entertainment Weekly, she is also using her natural graces in the world of microfinance. That’s right—most celebrities (okay, let’s admit, even non-celebrities) don’t even know what that is. But Natalie Portman is all over it. Natalie, we salute you!

In a nutshell, Natalie’s microfinance work, through FINCA International, is helping poor women get small loans to help change their lives for the better. She’s been working with them for four years and says:

FINCA allows them [women] to open their own businesses, which means that they can stay home with their children if they need to, and they are able to make better wages, so they’re feeding their children better, educating their children better, getting better health care, have better living conditions. All of poverty’s side effects are helped by this one program.

Natalie has also worked on documentaries featuring the women that FINCA has helped. Nevermind V for Vendetta. This is more like V for Venerable!
