Gender Revolution in Mumbai and Delhi, India

Revathi Siddhartha Roy unleashed a gender revolution when she ferried her first passenger from the international airport in Mumbai, India in 2007. She was powering the only cab service by women and for women in India:  Forsche.  As fate would have it, three years later she is struggling to keep it on the roads as both banks and micro-credit institutions have refused her loans.

Revathi Siddhartha Roy says:

‘The banks have refused me loans on the premise that girls who aspire to become taxi drivers are not economically viable.”

And let us not forget about Kiva.org, who enables loans to entrepreneurs across the globe for as little as $25.  These are loans that changes lives.
