About the event

Hon’ble Prime Minister of India has envisioned for the economic independence and empowerment of women in his speech on August 15, 2016. Converting job-seeker Women into job creators, enabling them to stand on their own feet and thereby promoting enterprises owned by Women entrepreneurs across the country to create a favourable and holistic environment for them to flourish.

The underlying overall intent has to leverage the institutional credit structure to reach out to the underserved sector by facilitating collateral free loans to the enterprising Women borrowers. The initiative is not only to develop synergies with ongoing various schemes of the government but also to intensify the inclusive growth, financial inclusion and social security schemes in India.
