The actress has filmed a PSA for FINCA, which assists low-income women in financing their small businesses

Natalie Portman has gone into the loan business. Or more exactly, the non-profit loan business.

She and Zoe Saldana are doing PSA announcements for FINCA International, the microfinance organization that’s seeking public support for giving small loans to low-income female entrepreneurs.

The women who are aided are primarily in Third World countries.

Portman’s take on this is, “There is no better gift than giving women living in poverty the ability to provide for themselves and their families.” The PSA videos go on the air Friday.
