Milaap was initiated in June 2010, by three passionate young entrepreneurs who had a single vision, to change people's concept of giving and make it a personal, transparent and sustainable process. By crowd-sourcing loans for social causes, Milaap enables the urban global citizen to make an impact in a small but accountable way. You can choose a person you want to help, make a returnable contribution for as little as $25 and watch the magic ensue. 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.
Choose a cause you care about, sign up with a target amount and a campaign timeline in just 3 clicks and pledge your Birthday. 100% of the money goes to beneficiaries.
Email your friends, share it on your facebook profile and tweet about your campaign. All funds are given out as loans and repaid back over time.
You'll get monthly repayments and progress updates through email. You are even invited to meet your beneficiaries through our periodic field trips.
