The primary objective of Dharma Life is to provide individuals from rural areas with opportunities to create a livelihood for themselves within their local community, thereby reducing rural to urban migration and rural underemployment. Through rural entrepreneurs, that are provided with a portfolio of socially impactful products such as solar lighting, improved cookstoves, water purifiers, nutritional drinks, and basic hygiene products, the village-based consumers also gain access to products that aims to improve their quality of life.

While the focus remains on creating entrepreneurs and catering to the needs of BoP customers, we have been able to create a highly scalable ecosystem that combines the best in class corporate practices with social impact. By 2020, we aim to recruit, train and mentor more than 100,000 entrepreneurs, which will help improve the lives of more than 50 million people.

Till date we have supported 5900+ village level enterprises and improved the livelihood of 960,000 individuals
