Milaap's Mothers Day 2015 fundraiser for Enterprise Development | Milaap
This is a supporting campaign. Contributions made to this campaign will go towards the main campaign.

This Mother's Day, fund a hardworking rural woman in honor of your mother and make her proud.



This Sunday (May 11) is Mother's Day. What if you could give one gift that's personal and would show how much you care?
Make a loan to a hardworking mother in rural India in honor of your mom. We'll send a personalised e-card with a hand-drawn caricature and a special message for your mother/loved ones.
This way, you will be doing two good things at once: helping a hardworking mother in need and giving a gift to your beloved mother!
Here’s how it works
1. Make a loan to this campaign.
2. Email us a picture of your mom (and you!) to socmed [at] milaap [dot] org with your special message for her. Include her name and email address (if she has one)
3. Wait for 24 hours (or even before!) and check your inbox to find a card just like the one below!
Lalbiakzangi from Mizoram. Madhuben Kanthibai from Gujarat. Kavitha from Tamil Nadu and Rekha from Karnataka (in picture). A tea-stall owner, a small cloth-selling business owner, and two women from different locations who rear goats. What links them all? Every single one of them is running a small enterprise in order to ensure that their children have the future that they could only dream about growing up.
For these women, due to different social and financial circumstances, they weren't able to follow their dreams when they are young. Now, they know the pressing need for education and how it can open doors that are very necessary. In order to educate their children, they set up small businesses either to supplement their husbands' incomes or as the sole wage earner. Rekha is a former Devadasi woman who is building a new life with the help of MASS (a Milaap field partner). Proud mother of one, she is determined that her daughter will not be condemned to the same life that she herself led.
Milaap, together with four of its field partners – MASS, Prayas, WSDS and GMF – is celebrating Mother's Day this year by fulfilling the dreams of these mothers. With a small loan from you, we can truly honour these mothers the way they deserve!
