Loren Thomas is the Co-Founder and CEO of Tribe + Glory. After a gap year in Uganda, Loren attended The University of Texas. In the summer of 2014, Loren started a grassroots women's empowerment program that would later go on to become the basis for Tribe + Glory. Through meeting women with extraordinary business dreams and the desire to pursue their dreams against all odds, she grew increasingly inspired by the potential of female entrepreneurs. Her studies in fashion and development fueled her excitement for a market-based approach and after graduating in 2016 she and Caragh took T+G independent.

Tribe + Glory empowers female entrepreneurs living below the poverty line to achieve self-sustainability through education and debt-free business opportunity. It is the organization’s desire to act as a stepping stool of empowerment for female entrepreneurs living below the poverty line. When a woman goes through the T+G program, she graduates with both the business education and the capital necessary to achieve her entrepreneurial goals. Our model uses relationship, craftsmanship, and entrepreneurship to equip women with the necessary skills and capital to achieve their dreams and become agents of transformation in their communities.
