Rang De is a pioneering, non-profit, web-based social initiative with a mission to help under-served communities break away from poverty through economic and social empowerment.
Rang De reaches the poorest of the poor to make credit available at extremely low and affordable interest rates of only 10%. Established in Jan 2008, the last 7 years have seen the organization grow from a humble seed capital of only 6000 pounds, to the current reality of having raised over Rs. 60 crores for 58,000+ loans till date. These loans have primarily been used for livelihood, education and micro-ventures and have created life chances and better employability for many and have helped them earn a more respectful life.
Through its online micro-lending platform, Rang De reaches out to underserved communities by working with a network of committed NGO field partners and social investors (individual and CSR contributors). Today, it has over 12000 social investors, 30 NGO partners and many corporates including Tata Trusts, ICICI and The World Bank onboard.
Rang De enables individuals to participate in the fight against poverty in India, both as social investors or as a part of our team.
