GTPF – Non-Profit – Product based Microfinance

Institutions are built with the aim of serving the society and the nation. GTPF believes that we can play a greater role towards serving the society. Today in India we face a number of problems in which poverty, illiteracy economic inequalities are rampant. We believe that there are two ways of living. The first way is to cope up with every situation and compromise to survive in this society.  The other way is to take up the responsibility to change for a better living. We want a change, we morally from our heart accept and believe in social equity.
