Milaap is an online platform that enables you to lend to India's working poor so they can get access to education, clean water, energy and more. It’s a loan, not a donation, which means that you get your full loan amount back once your borrower repays it. We believe that while donations can create great impact, they have a relatively short life-span. By giving someone a loan, you’re giving them a hand up; you’re encouraging borrowers to be judicious and enterprising. What’s best is that the same amount you lend to a borrower can be repeatedly used to fund more borrowers as soon as it is fully repaid! That way, small amount of money goes a long, long way.
