I, Aravind, am a simple guy from a middle class family who understands that a top down approach of "Good leaders make good countries" alone cannot solve our social problems but a two way process of top down and bottom up approach are needed to bridge the gap in our society. I do this by allocating a small percentage of my annual income and annual time availability for problems I believe need some support.
I believe education is the most important process in moulding a person's attitude and hence, his life itself. So I take all opportunities I get to provide young ones deprived of education to get that most basic tool. After all most social problems arise not due to lack of money but due to the lack of attitude!
Great news, folks! We've reached our target for Guruprasad! Any additional funds raised will go to another entrepreneur on Milaap. Thank you for making this possible.
Guruprasad is a happily married 28 year old from Bangalore,Karnataka. He works as a tailor for Ashraya, a self help group. Things looked just fine with an income of Rs.9000 per month, but now having to send his child to school, Guru is in a tight spot. He couldn't study beyond class 5 due to the financial crisis that his faced then and he doesn't want his child to face the same inhibition. He believes that a loan of Rs.35000 will enable him to expand the operations of his group. This would give him an income that would help meet his requirements as well.
What is Milaap all about?
Milaap is a social enterprise that enables people around the world to give loans to the working poor in India. Based in Bangalore, Milaap is the world's first and currently, the only online micro lending platform that enables non-Indians and non-resident Indians (NRIs) to make loans to the poor in India. Milaap's loans are aimed towards providing people with access to basic essentials like clean drinking water, sanitation, renewable energy, vocational training and enterprise development.
A few things that you may want to know about the money that you lend in:
This is a loan, not a donation.
- 100% of your money goes to the end borrower
- You will know exactly who your money goes to and get regular updates on your repayments.
- Within 24 months, you will get 100% of your money back.
