It's not having the idea that is so difficult but making it work in practice – the publicity, getting people to buy the product, making sure your supply chain works, that sort of thing. TIDE had done that as an NGO, they had already helped a lot of small businesses get going.

The TIDE team is extremely entrepreneurial and a pleasure to work with. They have a dogged persistence in going after goals and achieving them which sets them apart from a lot of other organisations in this sector.

It has been a pretty fulfilling journey with TIDE since 2014. TIDE's programs are very unique, as they are addressing a number of environmental issues, both in urban as well as rural India. They have received very good responses for their programs across our different products, both through retail and corporate donors. We hope we have been able to provide adequate funding required for enabling their programs. We wish to continue the journey and bring more changes together.
TIDE is doing very good work for women empowerment, training & building confidence. Need to keep up the work and help Indian rural women to improve their confidence and self-employment.
