Job Description

I need a female narrator for a short documentary video about a financial institution helping the poor in Mumbai, India.

THE TALENT HAS TO BE OF AN INDIAN ORIGIN AND TO SPEAK ENGLISH WITH A MILD INDIAN ACCENT.

PLEASE FIND A PORTION OF THE SCRIPT BELOW FOR AUDITION PURPOSES.



More than 60% of Mumbai’s 15 million people live in extreme poverty. While these residents could meet a portion of their basic livelihood needs through small loans, they lack access to financial institutions and products that would cater to their specific needs.

Swadhaar is a young microfinance institution focused on providing microfinance services to the urban poor in Mumbai. By functioning like a bank, Swadhaar makes regular, reliable and efficient financial services available to the urban poor in a sustainable and obtainable manner.

The following are the stories of those who are changing their lives with the help of Swadhaar.

Sangita, Papad Maker
A mainstay of Indian diets, papads are usually made by hand at home - typically of lentils - and flavored with black pepper, garlic or green chilies. Sangita Achrekar, who makes and sells papads for a living, has been receiving micro loans from Swadhaar for the past few years.

The extra capital that Sangita receives from Swadhaar helps her buy raw materials in bulk, something which she was unable to do prior to becoming a client. The bulk purchases help her lower her costs and increase production while reducing the number of trips to her suppliers.

Sudha, Jeweler
Sudha Sawant runs a jewelry business from her one room home in the Kherwadi district of Mumbai. Her clientele has grown to include both urban slum-dwellers, as well as middle class women.

Sudha took her first loan from Swadhaar in 2006 and since then has taken subsequent loans for the expansion of her business. She is currently in her third cycle, with an outstanding loan of 12,000 rupees.
