Mission, Vision, Values

Mission Through interest-free Nano Finance,  Aamara Biswas seeks to enable marginalized women living in remote villages and urban slums to tackle the many challenges of extreme poverty and to tap into their confidence and ability to empower themselves, their families and their community.
“The Nano Finance system has given me and the other women of my village strength and taught how to stand on our own feet by coming out of four walls.”-  Itishree  Behera, the coordinator of Noliasahi, Jagatsinghpur district, Odisha, India 

Vision Millions of women around the world who are born into extreme poverty will have the tools to be impactful agents of change, empowerment and leadership in their community.
Since the women started earning and bringing money for the family, they have gained respect of their husbands and other family members.” –  Geeta Pradhan, the coordinator of Anugul district, Odisha, India

Values We believe in trust, respect, integrity and equality. (Biswas in Sanskrit means trust.)
The Nano Finance system thrives on trust. The women believe in the system and trust their coordinators.
