Singh reports that the article is meant to convey the message that “female entrepreneurs should not be discouraged by any bias they experience in traditional financing environment” and that “our support for crowdlending platforms helps entrepreneurs, especially those that are disadvantaged, in acquiring funding for their businesses."
