MM69 – One Girl Can with Lotte Davis

Lotte Davis is the Co-Founder of AG Hair, the only manufacturer of professional hair care products in Canada, with distribution to over 20,000 salons and beauty stores internationally. Lotte and her husband John Davis started AG Hair in 1989 in the basement of their North Vancouver home with a $5000 loan. Their hair care line, known for its integrity and meticulous selection of natural ingredients, has grown exponentially over the past 29 years and now employs over 100 people with projected sales of $35M this year. In 2008, she began building schools for girls in some of the poorest regions in Africa. By 2013, this initiative developed into the creation of her own NGO called One Girl Can, expanding the scope of the work she does in Africa to include scholarships for girls to secondary school and university, as well as a comprehensive mentoring and coaching program. Success for One Girl Can is realized only when these students begin to earn a living, and Lotte is personally invested in each girl to ensure she achieves this goal. Lotte is the 2016 winner of the YWCA Women of Distinction award for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
