Rural India faces a number of challenges when it comes to accessing goods and services, and many of these problems are rooted in the country's limited infrastructure and education system.
In recent years, we have seen a shift in the way that rural India is being viewed by the rest of the world. The rise of social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram has made it easier than ever for people around the world to connect with each other on a personal level—and this same phenomenon has been shown to have positive effects on businesses across many industries. But what about rural India? When does social media's potential for change reach even farther into the heartland? And how can we use it to empower one of our most underserved populations?
The Kasbaa team solves this problem by providing online marketplaces for rural entrepreneurs (especially women) who want to sell their goods and services using social media platforms. The marketplace provides an opportunity for these women entrepreneurs to connect directly with customers from all across India, which is particularly important because there are so few opportunities for people living in rural areas to access goods and services like they would if they lived in an urban setting. Rural India is an under-served market. The lack of access to goods and services, lack of income opportunities, etc., are all issues that rural Indians face on a daily basis. It's time to change that!
In order to empower rural India, we need to provide training and resources for entrepreneurs so they can start their own businesses. This way, these entrepreneurs can sell their products and services online through various platforms. By giving these rural entrepreneurs access to an online marketplace, we're empowering them with the tools they need to succeed in this cutthroat business environment. And by providing them with tools, we're helping them achieve upward mobility—something that has been sorely missing from their lives for generations now.
