We aim to co-create one million jobs for women in rural India. A job means an income, economic autonomy and an escape from the cycle of poverty.

In order to reach our goal, we share business knowledge with and provide mentoring to social entrepreneurs in India who work with rural women to accelerate the growth of their organizations. Through our online community platform, we are also providing access to markets and access to finance to our partners. By improving the business of our partners, more products will be sold and more jobs are generated. Thus, we co-create lasting impact.

Sustainable Development Goals
Our work contributes to the United Nation’s ‘Sustainable Development Goals’. All the targets have been formulated in September 2015 to be completed by the year 2030. This is supported on a global scale by governments and development agencies. Through our work we contribute to the SDGs as shown on top.

“In order to reach our goal of one million jobs for women in rural India, we have a strong focus on job creating business models in textile and food & agri.”
