We, at ARTH (a non-profit development sector entity) are trying to find alternate ways to fund the cost of additional interest to our borrowers and take the burden off the women micro-entrepreneurs. This would further enable them to protect their families and revive their small businesses.
The total cost of COVID accrued repayments of micro loans availed by rural women is around INR 500,000 ($6,500) which is estimated to bring a lifetime impact on the livelihood of 3,000 rural entrepreneur and provide them a glimmer of hope to survive through these difficult times together.
ARTH is a registered non-profit entity, working for enhancing the livelihoods of women in rural and remote rural India. Our objective is to provide access of facilities pertaining to healthcare, credit, food supplies, etc. to the most vulnerable sections of the society, which are on the brink of collapse.
We humbly appeal for your generous support during this dark hour.
