I am running a SF half marathon on July 27th to empower rural mothers to start their own businesses



Hi all,
I am running in San Francisco Half Marathon (on July 27th) and want to use this occasion to raise funds for Milaap.
What is Milaap:
Milaap is a microlending organisation working in India. The end borrowers are the deserving, working poor of India –students, small businesses, families - who need a small amount of capital to get ahead and change their lives for the better.
Milaap connects thousands of Lenders to borrowers through their field partners.
Lend vs Donate:
You are not donating the money, but lending it to deserving entrepreneurs, home owners, women. They will repay the money back to you as per the loan terms and then you can either withdraw that money or lend it again to someone else and continue the cycle.
My campaign:
I started running last year with a goal of running in a Marathon. I completed 5k first, then a 10k, then 15k and now am preparing to run in my first ever half Marathon. It's on 27th of July in San Francisco and I am equally nervous and excited about it. I am using this occasion to raise awareness about Milaap and also raise some funds for 4 entrepreneurial groups.
What you can do:
Use the links at the top right to lend the amount you wish. You may need to create an account first. You can lend as little as $25 (or Rs 500) If you want to learn more about Milaap, head over to their site (https://milaap.org) and read how they work and which loans are outstanding.
Lend a little, change a lot.
