Equitas, the Microfinance bank in India have been selected for best market place solution in the Disability Matters Asia Pacific event 2017.

Many congratulations to everyone involved in the project, that some may remember was selected for the Zero Project 2017 awards in the category of Innovative Employment Practices.

In case you need a re-fresh, the project identifies women who run small businesses and have a marginalised disabled background and offers microfinance solutions without collateral. Between 2008 and 2016 an incredible 14,000 women with disabilities received loans.

John Alex, Group Head-Social Initiatives at Equitas will be continuing to spread the word on this great project, by giving a talk on the model at the upcoming Annual SEEP Conference in October 2-4, 2017 at Arlington, USA.
