Rural entrepreneurs often have difficulty getting the exposure they need to be successful. Madura Microfinance has so far created various methods to help these business owners access new markets and learn about new opportunities and products, giving them the ability to present their products and services to our rural members.
Taking this forward, in a path breaking and significant initiative, Madura Microfinance has announced that it will provide Mobile connectivity to its members across Tamil Nadu to enable them in expanding their business operations beyond limiting boundaries. The Madura Carnival, will launch this “upwardly mobile” initiative while also celebrating Madura Microfinance’s fifteenth year of operations.
