Let me share more about social investment with Rang De in this post. But first, let us understand what social investing is all about.
What is social investing?
Social investing, also known as socially responsible investing (SRI), is an investment strategy seeking to generate financial returns while considering social and environmental impacts.
In recent years, social investing has become increasingly popular as investors have become more aware of their investments’ social and environmental impact and have sought to align their investments with their values.
It’s a way of giving back to the underprivileged and giving them the financial independence and empowerment they may need to lead.
Simply put, social investing is when you invest in facilitating a social cause. Simply put, it is the use of repayable finance to help someone achieve a purpose affiliated with a social mission.
Let’s do some simple math. Look up the expenses you may have had in the last week.
- A lunch or dinner outside = 4000 INR
- Movie outing: Tickets + popcorn + samosa = 1500 INR
- A pizza because you were too tired to cook a meal = 2000 INR
Even if you indulge in any of these, you have spent X amount of money. While the message here is that you can spend on what you want, your money can be a livelihood for a person.
But starting with an investment of as little as INR 500 can generate 10-11 days of livelihood for remote small-scale entrepreneurs. You are enabling them or giving them the financial empowerment to scale their venture, which is the source of their livelihood. All that you contribute is crucial to them as they do not have accessible credit options, which limits their growth.
Startling right? What can just this much money do? But wait, there is more.
