When our programs start scaling, we look to introduce techniques that have been developed in the high-end of the economy such as financial engineering and technology, among others. For us to maintain program quality and really benefit those who are not a part of the developed economy, technology is probably the biggest lever. As technology gets more sophisticated and capable, it becomes relevant to a lot more people.
We want to ensure that innovation is continuously injected into our solutions so that they get better, faster and economical. And so, we welcome more partners to work with us and more importantly, learn from each other as we go along.
Ours is a humble beginning – a small step towards rural transformation.
