Associate Vice President, Business Consulting
“My work includes identifying opportunities to create greater access to credit for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises in Indonesia. I have not only got a chance to understand the dynamics of the country, but also broaden my horizons. ”
Having worked for many years in the consulting business to create benefits for corporate clients, I believed it was time to get involved in something different. I was seeking out a vocation which would create significant socioeconomic good and benefit the BoP. That's when I decided to be a part of Intellecap. My journey at Intellecap though still fairly young, has been one of great learning, where I witnessed great minds working together with a shared passion - 'How to make the life of people at the BoP better'. I am sure that while the journey may be a challenging one, it’s certainly going to be fruitful.
My current assignment includes identifying opportunities to create greater access to credit for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises in Indonesia. The role involves interacting with various regulatory bodies, government agencies, and financial institutions to identify opportunities for creating a better infrastructure for lending. This assignment has not only helped me understand the dynamics of the country, but also has broadened my horizons.
My work at Intellecap is a perfect blend of what we as consultants can do for corporate clients and at the same time ensure a direct positive impact on the community. What more could have I asked for!
I am intrigued by the thought that while everyone talks about how the economy has been shaping up, we have somehow ignored a larger section of our society i.e. the BoP. It has the potential to contribute to our economic success yet it still faces the toughest everyday challenges. I am motivated by how I can contribute to addressing their challenges by aligning the global development community.
While fairly new at Intellecap, the amount of learning that I have already been put through is a very attractive proposition. Intellecap, as one of the early entrants into social impact space, not only presents a greater opportunity for me to grow but also provides the extent of knowledge that sets benchmarks for others not just in India, but across the world.
