These words of Gloria Steinem, "It is more rewarding to watch money change the world than watch it accumulate." As an advocate of bottom-up development, I like the concept of micro-finance or lending money to those who are in need. The idea of lending money to make an impact by empowering the end user is a stupendous model of self-sustainability.

 I always wanted to help people and make a difference in their  life.These ideas have been reverberating in my mind for a long  time, but never ever saw the light of the day.

 One day while sitting at home and browsing for volunteering        opportunities in Bangalore, I unexpectedly found Milaap. I    visited Milaap.org and came across these lines, “We can sit around all day and discuss social issues or we could actually do something about them”. I also saw a fellow rider, Siva’s fundraiser, and at the very moment I knew this was it. That was the time to make a move. I picked up my phone and called a friend of mine for her opinion on a crazy idea of raising funds by cycling 300 km in a day. Half an hour of discussion provided me with an impetus to go ahead. I mailed, and later met up with the Milaap team, and discussed my idea, and here it is!

So folks, I will be attempting a 300 km bicycle ride on 6th September, 2013 and would request you to generously contribute (lend) so that I can raise $500 for this campaign.

  Come forward and lend as much as you want to! (I wrote "as       much" because
the money you put into my campaign is going     to  come back to you at the end of the loan cycle, only after       touching  many lives and making a life changing impact).

If anyone wants to join me on this ride, you are most welcome!


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 18 months, you will get 100% of your money back.

Lending to the working poor through Milaap involves risk of principal loss. Milaap does not guarantee repayment nor do we offer a financial return on your loan
