2012

LaXmi is a hands-on visual educational system derived from a traditional Indian floor game Chaupar. It was designed to introduce illiterate women to the concept micro-financing. By allowing women to physically experience a simulation of micro-financing, they will be better able to save and invest small earnings that will grow exponentially through collaboration with other group members.
