Indian BPL – 214 Million earning on an average Rs. 10 per day, out of which 16 million people are living in rural areas
Of the world’s 6.4 billion poor, about 2.6 billion live on less than US $2 per day. The poor have largely untapped potential for consumption, production, innovation and entrepreneurial activity. The need is to do business with them so as to bring them out in the market place. This is a sure way of freeing them from the poverty. The more business models integrate and include the poor, the higher are the chances for the companies to increase their revenues while fulfilling the millennium development goals (MDGs)”.
