Expense Account, Mint
The BlackBerry is active but basic banking is not. I’m at Gaula, home to only 150 people across 27 families. It is also the regional office of Chirag, a 21-year-old non-profit based out of Sitla, Uttarakhand.
Why am I here? The chief executive of Chirag is concerned that his staff of 133 is getting misled into buying financial products that just don’t work for them. He thought of getting me over to conduct financial literacy workshops after the sales push of life insurance agents got to a level that had him worried.
