Micro Finance:
Many of the rural enterprises fail due to unavailability of timely credit support. Credit deprivation of rural poor is major hurdle in their effort to break the vicious cycle of poverty.Hence, the Foundation provides micro finance support for initiation or expansion of the activity, once exposure and training is given and the individuals become motivated, skilled and equipped to run the enterprise properly. This credit support has been extremely effective in the mushrooming of the prosperous enterprises within areas of our presence.
