The Sitara brand identity draws its life from a holistic idea of progress for women in the informal sector.

Who We Are

SEWA Grih Rin Limited (Sitara) provides affordable housing finance to the under-served low income households, especially their women members, in urban and peri-urban locations. Such households are under-served because their housing tenure and incomes are informal. Through its innovative use of alternative collateral and progressive tenure documents, Sitara works towards bringing these families into the financial services fold, most of whom were otherwise denied loans for lack of clear property title. Our work is aimed at directly improving the quality of life of informal women workers by creating a tangible financial asset in their name.
