Our mission is to enable Indians to invest in and support the entrepreneurial and educational needs of low-income households. We do this by connecting individual social investors to a community of curated entrepreneurs and students from across the country.
Who are Rang De's investees?
Rang De's investees are individuals and groups who have been denied credit or not offered credit by financial institutions. They are carefully curated by our network of credible impact partner organisations, hand picked by us and who work on the ground.
What purposes does Rang De facilitate loans for?
We facilitate loans for livelihood, education and health needs of our investees. Often, fulfilling these needs are the reason individuals end up borrowing at exorbitant interest rates. Our goal is to expand access to low-cost credit, with the help of social investors.
What is the minimum and maximum investment that I can make?
An individual can lend as little as Rs.100 and as much as Rs.50 lakhs through the platform. Social investors can choose to invest across states and occupations based on their own preferences.
What returns do social investors get when they lend?
Typically returns will range between 3.6% & 9% Annual Percentage Rate (APR), similar to interest earnings on your savings bank account or your fixed deposit.
What is the interest rate that investees pay?
Rang De's purpose is to ensure that investees pay affordable interest on their loans. Our loan products are thus customised for individual needs. The highest interest that an investee would pay for a loan through Rang De is 10% flat per annum which is 18% annual percentage rate (APR).
