The Inspiration

The Inspiration

When Prof. Yunus and the Grameen Bank won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2006, it sparked inspiration for our co-founders Ram and Smita.

They felt that credit could play a transformative role in ending poverty. And so, with Rang De, they set their sights on addressing affordability and access.
