Rang De

Rang De is a pioneering, web-based social initiative with a mission to provide cost effective microcredit to low income households in India. Through an online microlending platform called RangDe.Org, it enables individuals to participate in microcredit by lending as little as Rs. 100. The problem Rang De is trying to address is inaccessibility of affordable finance to low income households for business and education. About 80% of the working poor are still dependent on local money lenders for credit who compel them to borrow at exorbitant interest rates and remain indebted for life. Since January 2008, Rang De has reached out to over 4542 entrepreneurs across 10 states in India by lending over Rs. 23 million.
