I am pledging my birthday to help the rural poor cover construction and renovation costs


Food, clothing and housing are the three basic needs of any human being. Yet, for the 70% of India’s population that lives in rural India, and being able to afford basic housing is still a huge challenge. The Working Group on Rural Housing estimated the total rural housing shortage during 2007-2012 to be about 47.3 million houses, of which 90% of the shortage.

While there have been attempts from the central and state governments to ease the issues through schemes such as Indira Awas Yojana and state-run housing schemes, the problem is still very real. Low-cost, affordable is still a distant dream. Some MFIs that Milaap has partnered with are offering small loans towards house renovation, or to help fund part of home construction costs in rural areas.
