The woman who has moved huge mountains to achieve her dreams is the Womennovator Chetna Sinha. In 1996, she founded the Mann Deshi Foundation in Mhaswad, a drought-stricken area of Maharashtra, with the aim of socially empowering the rural women. In 1997, India’s first bank set up for and by rural women was formed and was headed by Chetna. Today, the foundation runs a Women’s Empowerment Programme that includes a dozen Business Schools and three Chambers of Commerce for rural women and young girls. It also has a Community Empowerment Programme for farmers that supports Water Conservation, Fair Trade and Access to Markets. It has a Sports Programme for talented athletes and a women-owned Community Radio which reaches over 100,000 listeners. The Bank regularly creates new financial products to support the needs of female micro-entrepreneurs. Till date, Mann Deshi has supported over 400,000 women and plans to reach one million women entrepreneurs by 2022. Before she founded Mann Deshi, Chetna was involved in several Gandhian, farmers and feminist movements, including the Jayaprakash Narayan (JP) movement. Her future plans include a program specifically for Young Entrepreneurs, as well as incorporating technology in the business school curriculum.
