Our Inspiration

Roots back to the work of Dr. V.A. Deshpande (popularly known as Bapusaheb Deshpande) who was given the task of setting up Self-Help-Groups while he was the Chief of Rural Development Center of Bank of Maharashtra, one of the major nationalized banks of India. He was also at the helm of forming the Gramin Mahila Va Baal Vikas Mandal in association with NABARD  Inspiration also stems from the work of Prof. Dinker Rao from NIBM who worked relentlessly to formulate and provide micro-finance schemes to these rural entrepreneurs.
