Frequently asked questions

What purposes are the loans for?

These are livelihood loans to enable entrepreneurs to start and scale their businesses. The businesses vary across states. Some examples of businesses we have funded in the past are small eateries, mushroom cultivation, handicrafts, retail outlets and food processing.

Which states are the entrepreneurs from?

We are starting with entrepreneurs from Uttarakhand, but will soon be onboarding entrepreneurs from other North Eastern States, followed by the rest of India. We are working closely with our Impact Partners to identify the entrepreneurs who require credit to take the next step in their business.

How will my funds be invested in entrepreneurs?

Your funds will be invested in entrepreneurs utilising a system that is designed to distribute risk. As soon as an entrepreneur’s loan application is processed, their loan is funded from this pool of funds, by chipping into small portions of multiple social investors’ funds.

How can I track how my funds are being used?

Every time your funds are invested in an entrepreneur, you will receive an email notification about the same. You will also be able to track the progress and the status of repayments through your Rang De dashboard.

How will I be repaid?

You will be repaid in monthly or quarterly repayments (the tenure of loans vary between 6 months - 24 months). This amount will be credited to your Rang De account. You can then choose to reinvest in other investees or withdraw the funds.

Why can’t I choose who I want to invest in?

The model of raising social investments which can be immediately disbursed to meet urgent needs has worked extremely well for our investees, and hence has been retained. However, if there are investees still waiting for funds, they will be listed here, and you can choose to invest in them.
