Mann Deshi

Mann Deshi Bank, active in six different locations across Maharashtra, is a pioneer in the microcredit field in India and mainly focuses on women empowerment. It’s sister organization, the Mann Deshi Foundation is responsible for several programs concerning women’s literacy and non-financial support. This organization believes in the adoption of a holistic approach: on the one hand they provide financial services to poor women, making them economically independent, on the other hand they provide training, mentorship and support, so as to make women self-confident.
But the Foundation’s initiatives are not just directed towards women: Mann Deshi tries to improve women’s lives as well as their children’s. Mann Deshi Champions is a program sponsored by the Foundation that aims at developing children’s social skills through sports - and that’s where you get involved in with “Be In Their Shoes - BITS” Project!
