Chetna Sinha announces investment fund for women entrepreneurs

Davos, Jan 23 (UNI) India's first bank for and by rural women will launch an alternative investment fund for women entrepreneurs, worth 100 million rupees.
Chetna Sinha, who set up the Mann Deshi Mahila Sahakari Bank in Maharashtra, announced this at the Davos World Economic Forum annual meeting, calling for financial access for everyone.
Sinha has turned the sleepy, rural Mhaswad, a drought-prone region of Satara district, into a seat of entrepreneurial aspirations for women.
Born and brought up in Mumbai, Sinha moved to Mhaswad after marrying Vijay Sinha, who she met during the students’ movement led by Jayprakash Narayan in the 1970s.
She aims to empower over a million women entrepreneurs in the country, giving them necessary access to both knowledge and working capital.
“WEF 2018 theme is how to create a shared future in a fractured world. I come with solutions for creating a more inclusive and equitable world. All learnt from listening to women at grassroots,” Sinha said on Twitter..
Sinha is one of the all-women co-chairs at the World Economic Forum -- a first in the forum's nearly five-decade history -- along with other influential women entrepreneurs and leaders, including IMF director Christine Lagarde and former Norwegian prime minister Erna Solberg, called for financial access for everyone.
