Rang De is doing exceptionally in making a difference: Krishnan Subramanian Iyer, Investor and Board Member For Several Listed and Privately Held Companies In India, And The US

Why am I a social investor? Well, as the old saying goes, it takes a village. How does it take a village? It requires someone to make an effort. I have been investing for over 30 years. With Rang De, I have been investing for more than 18 months. I am exceptionally happy with them. Not just from the return perspective, but also from the fact that they are making a difference and I get informed about everything. I get informed regularly on where my money is going, how it is helping the people and also when there are some delays in the repayments.

About The Campaign

About The Campaign


Schools are beginning to reopen amidst a lot of chaos. Teachers have had to undergo salary cuts, many parents have not been able to pay the school fees due to job losses. For low income households, the challenge is accentuated further. With classes going online, thousands of children have had to scramble for gadgets to get online. The digital divide has never been more obvious, resulting in several kids dropping out of school.

To address the brewing crisis in the education space, Rang De along with NDTV hopes to intervene by providing interest free loans to low income households. The campaign aims to create awareness about the problem and raise interest free loans for student communities across India.
