About Siddhanth: 

One among the massive flock of young Indians in silicon valley, California. We often tend to call ourselves and people our age back home the future of the country. Fortunately I have realized that we don't deserve that tag, not yet at least. We don't deserve the tag just because of our age, our education or our fairly limited success. We don't deserve the tag if we simply have discussions about the sorry state of affairs of India and do nothing about it.

We don't deserve the tag if we keep politicizing every issue back home and come up with various solutions some of which often tend to cite education as its backbone. 
We deserve the tag only if we are ready to make an effort, a contribution to change something, somewhere. I for one, want to justify this tag on me and have decided to stop talking and start doing.
 

Motivation:
 
Philanthropy is often considered as an act of charity but the definition as it stands is "love of humanity" in the sense of caring for, nourishing, developing, and enhancing "what it is to be human" . 

Now all of that put together can seem like a tall order. But how about just providing the means for someone to care for, nourish and develop oneself and possibly his or her family.

Empowering someone to lead a better life someday is probably the best way to support humanity and society. When I came across the borrower profiles and when I realized the difference I could make in my own countrymen's life, I knew I had to be a part of this and support Milaap in its efforts. As once famously said "Inspiration exists, but it has to find us working" Give yourself a chance and you'll see the difference you can mak.

About Bhimraj: 


An 18 year old pursuing his BA, Bhim wants to undergo training in an electrical related field. He wants to become an electrician, but cannot afford the training fees. The entire amount required is Rs. 30,000, which will help him attend a course offered by Mahashakti Foundation. After the training course, Bhim plans will work as an electrician and from the salary offered to him he will repay the loan.

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.
