In an interview on Sunday, Natalie Portman told ABC’s “The Week” that small loans can change the lives of some of the world’s poorest women.

The actress is a supporter of FINCA, an organisation which provides such loans to individuals in developing countries.

Portman said that she had met mothers younger than her who had no option but to take low-paid jobs in poor conditions.

“And then they’re able to get a loan and start their own business out of their own house and be with their children,” Portman said. “It changes the whole system.”
