My name is Sri Jaladi. Welcome to the movement to end poverty!

I'm a high school student from St. Louis, MO. I founded NANO-Lending with a single purpose: to empower those facing homelessness and who are homeless with entrepreneurial opportunities. 

To date we have empowered over 100 entrepreneurs. What is unique about NANO-Lending is that we do NOT require any repayment nor charge any interest nor fees. Instead we ask that the entrepreneur pay-it-forward.

We are also responding to the growing COVID-19 crisis by working closely with shelters and emergency care providers including hospitals by donating hand-sewn face masks. To date we have donated over 1,000 face masks. If you would like to help those who are unhoused, please click on our Donate button to learn how you can help us contribute. Thanks.
