Swarna Pragati, India’s first affordable rural housing microfinance company, recently announced new debt funding from the country’s largest bank

The latest funding—which comes after a 2015 Series B round that included Omidyar Network—will help the company provide innovative financing to more women and low-income and rural families, helping them make critical improvements to their homes and build a foundation for future prosperity.
