To empower the poor to become self reliant.
Swayam Krishi Sangam (SKS) is an initiative to empower the poor to become self-reliant. Since 1998, SKS has been working in India, where over 400 million people live in poverty, more than any other country in the world. They cope with their vulnerability by turning to money-lenders who charge exploitative rates of interest-often as high as 72% per year - that put the poor in a debt trap. SKS breaks this cycle, by giving the poor loans for emergencies and for income generating activities. SKS' focus on micro-lending to strengthen women's economic capacity is an integral part of our vision to increase women's access to and control over income and resources. The SKS Foundation works to support SKS by raising funds, elevating awareness, and generating innovative ways to expand SKS and its affiliates.
