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 mahiladallas.org/tickets.
