The Dallas Morning News - - METRO / STATE - Twit­ter: @deb­biewfleck

Five Dal­las-based women have cho­sen the word Mahila — Hindi for “woman” — as the name of their new or­ga­ni­za­tion that aims to help less-for­tu­nate fe­male en­trepreneurs.

“Our goal is to best share our strength with un­der­priv­i­leged women to bring about mean­ing­ful, last­ing change,” life­style guru Priya Bhola Rathod said.

Rathod founded the group along with at­tor­ney Bina Pal­nitkar Pa­tel, ar­chi­tect Purva Jain, cul­tural ad­vo­cate Preeta Monga and so­cial en­tre­pre­neur Ami Doshi.

The non­profit group will host its in­au­gu­ral fundraiser from 7 to 10 p.m. April 7 at DEC on Dragon, 1414 Dragon St. Funds raised will sup­port Mi­laap USA’s mi­croloan pro­gram.

Tick­ets are $100 and can be or­dered at mahi­ladal­­ets.
