‘Dvara’ coined from the Sanskrit word dvarata, meaning access, speaks to our vision of enabling opportunities and new beginnings for millions of low-income households.

We are a group of professionals with a strong belief in the transformative power of financial services. We are interested in systemic change and therefore undertake two kinds of activities: policy research and investing in/supporting commercial efforts where we believe there is a market gap.
