Escape's take on Shivia Microfinance

Shivia have a meaningful claim to be the most 'small and mighty' team in this year's Escape 100 list. With a core team of three (and a small group of trustees), they are UK-based charity whose impact is mostly felt on-the-ground in India. There, they empower and upskill those in need - particularly women - to work their way out of poverty and build a brighter and sustainable future for themselves and their family. Their programmes range from agri-training to goat farming, with the aim of helping others to start their own enterprise and earn a decent income. It's an innovative and exciting model that is meaningfully helping people to progress out of poverty. Keep an eye out for opportunities as they start to grow their team!
