Consulting Services for Micro Loans? – Janet Fouts

Consulting Services for Micro Loans?

pulavatiWhen I started my first company I had the great good fortune to be backed by a seasoned venture capitalist and  advisors to help me learn the ins and outs of running a startup. I was eager, motivated and knew basically nothing about running a business. But I had passion and people believed in me, and after quite a few hard knocks the business not only survived but flourished.

I cannot imagine what it would be like to be one of 250,000 girls given to a local temple in their home town to serve as Devadasis (Servants of a deity) at a very young age. Without education or funds to better their lives these women are forced into prostitution to survive.

Enter Milapp, a micro-lending platform that is helping these women gain access to funds to become entrepreneurs. The organization has given out over 8500 loans to start their own businesses and for the Devadasis, a way to stand proud as entrepreneurs.

Where does the consulting come in?
Easy. I’m a digital marketing strategist. I work with businesses of all sizes from Fortune 50 corporations to individuals building their personal brands online.

I’m also fundraising for a group of Devadasi who want to either start or expand their own businesses with micro-loans through Milaap.

My offer to you
I’ll give¬†the next 10 people who lend $25 to help former Devadasi women start their own businesses 30 minutes of consulting time for your own business. Lend $50 and I’ll give you an hour.

Remember, this is just a loan. You get your money back, you feel great for helping these women change their lives and the lives of their families, and you get support for your own business too.

Even better, through the end of April the Montpelier Foundation will match all loans up to $25K! So do this right now. Go to the campaign page and donate, then drop me an email and we will set up a call right away. I can help you with SEO, Facebook, Twitter or Google Ads, WordPress or general consulting about social media and digital marketing.

What have you got to lose?
