DALLAS, Texas — Five Dallas-based Indian American women have joined forces to create an organization aimed at empowering and mobilizing less fortunate women entrepreneurs on the international level.
Called “Mahila,” the group consists of attorney Bina Palnitkar Patel, architect Purva Jain, media and lifestyle guru Priya Bhola Rathod, cultural advocate Preeta Monga and social entrepreneur Ami Doshi.
The organization is hosting its inaugural event on April 7 to raise funds for struggling, low-income women living and working in India by supporting Milaap USA's microloan program.
Milaap USA's mission is to promote financial inclusion for individuals and families through access to low cost funds in the following sectors: enterprise development, clean energy, water and sanitation, education and vocational training and healthcare.
One hundred percent of the proceeds raised from this event will go directly towards Milaap's work in India, and every year Mahila will choose a different women's organization to support through fundraising.
