Micro Heroes is a mobile-based application to enable the poor people to start and run microbusinesses by driving customer engagement and investments through cashbacks, high returns and adept game mechanics.
Micro Heroes is the bridge between the investor, i.e., YOU and the poor people who wish to start microbusinesses, through a network of NGOs that work in the microfinancing industry. We will not only help the poor get access to investment, but also mentor them, help them learn communicative English, and give them access to low-cost marketing strategies and an online marketplace for them to sell their products.
Therefore, the Micro Heroes app acts as the catalyst for solving a major social issue (prevalent across the world) while generating steady cashflow through multiple sources. It not only helps funding businesses but also ensures growth and sustainability (through product selling and mentorship).
What we want to achieve with Micro Heroes is nothing short of extraordinary. Creating self-sustainable businesses is at the heart of what we wish for the country - to enable the poor people to dream of a life that they are worthy of - to create platforms and help them get funded and be self-sustainable.
The impact can be in any domain - dairy farming, agriculture, jewelery making, tailoring, kirana shops, handicrafts, small scale pickle-factories, and everything else under the sun.
Over the course of the next ten years, we wish to reach out to, and help start micro-businesses for 1,00,00,000 deserving people.
According to the World Bank, India has more than 179.6 million people below the poverty line. India, in other words, while having 17.5% of total world's population, have 20.6% share of world's poor.
Amidst a hundred odd reasons as to why the poor remain poor, one major issue is the lack of proper funding enabling them to start microbusinesses of their own. Even if funding is available, there is no proper mentoring systems in place to ensure that the poor run their businesses properly and improve their family income by at least a 100%.
The task isn’t made easy by the fact that the problems are three-fold:
NGOs involved in microfinancing are devoid of funds to touch more people.
The poor people across the country need beacons of light – a pathway to financial freedom from poverty that they have always yearned for. Now, what if YOU are their hero? Yes, YOU. What if you invest in their dreams? What if you say, “Oh well, I would love to see India completely poverty-free? Let me change the lives of people around me”. What if you be the one to rise for them, to stand up for them, to lead them to a better life? It is indeed possible. But, not without YOU.
At the end of the day, it is beyond just an investment opportunity for you...it is something noble. Investing in other people’s dreams always is.
At this point, you might be wondering… “Well, all that is noble, but, what is actually in it for me except some good karma?”. The answer to that question took a year of research and development and constant brainstorming to arrive at. Now, not only will you get good karma, you will also get:
