Podcast: Praseeda Kunam, Woman Entrepreneur

We are happy to announce our partnership with Beyond Profit – A New Social Enterprise Magazine. Their mission is to bring you the most interesting and unique stories, people and ideas from the social enterprise sector. We believe this is similar to our objective and hence it made sense to join hands! The following is the first post (podcast infact ) as part of this partnership:

At Beyond Profit, we hold female social entrepreneurs close to our heart (probably because we are a team of mostly women!). Microfinance is a field in which women have long been a majority of customers, but a minority of the leaders. Praseeda Kunam is an exception, a pioneering woman who launched and runs her own microfinance institution. Praseeda left the job market after getting her MBA to start Samhita Community Development Service, which serves poor women in Madhya Pradesh, a particularly impoverished state in India.

In this podcast (link provided below), hear Praseeda speak about the challenges of being a woman entrepreneur in the financial inclusion space, the role of technology in the rapid expansion of Samhita, and the road ahead for her organization and the sector.

Praseeda was the winner of the Srijan 2008 “Most Promising Business Idea Award.” The Srijan Microfinance Forum recognizes emerging and innovative microfinance initiatives in India and serves as a platform for public debate about some of the sector’s most pressing issues.
