Please see below for their latest success story:

The problem: Low-income deaf adults often struggle to find gainful, sustainable employment.

Dhruv’s dream: For the deaf population of Mumbai to integrate itself into the economic mainstream — and in doing so, set an example for empowering people with disabilities everywhere.

Mirakle Courier’s approach: As a social business, Mirakle Couriershires, trains and employs deaf adults as couriers. With competitive rates and a high-performing delivery team, the business has recently expanded into domestic and international operations.

Mirakle Courier’s reach and impact:

• 50 low-income deaf adults sustainably employed as couriers and office workers
• Average increase in employee income is 300%

UnLtd India has helped Mirakle Couriers to think about sustainable growth in a very crowded business space, resulting in better prospects and margins.

A big welcome to all the 19 new and repeat investees who were successful in our latest selection round. We hosted a fun evening on August 18, 2011 for the new batch to interact with peers and the UnLtd India team. Bombay Hub, the venue, witnessed inspiring conversations, laugh riots and some impromptu Bollywood dancing!
