How does the Rang De model work?
Social investors invest in an investee or fund of their choice. Each social investor invests an amount of their choice, starting with Rs. 100. Once a loan is fully funded through these investments, the funds are transferred directly to the investee's bank account. The investee repays the loan according to a repayment schedule, and the social investors receive these repayments in the form of Rang De credit in their dashboard. This credit can be reinvested or withdrawn to the social investor's bank account.
How does Rang De curate investees?
Rang De works with a network of impact partners across the country. These organizations identify individuals who need credit within the communities they work with. To know more about our impact partners, visit rangde.in/know-the-partner.
