Women Entrepreneurs to Lead Economic Growth with LALA WORLD

“Women are the real architect of the society” – Harriet Beecher Stowe

Women entrepreneurship has been widely accepted as a significant source of economic growth. The women entrepreneurs today are capable of producing new job opportunities for themselves and communities across the world, setting examples for the society with unique solutions in management and businesses they run. With a womanly approach rather just being aggressive and money minded, they always bring in a different perspective, creativity and their special sauce on a business model that can have a positive impact on lives as they have an eye for minute details- from colors to keeping things tidy and in order, perfectly in sync to business planning.

However, women still represent a minority in entrepreneurial ecosystem and its sad that there could be many brilliant ideas that we don’t even know about, but can be successful and socially impacting. And they just lie within. This lack of push for female entrepreneurship runs deep in systemic inequalities which must be addressed now, to increase accessibility for all genders.

LALA World is a fast-emerging financial ecosystem which can positively impact this space by providing more resources to women to being a journey towards a rewarding livelihood and exploring their dreams. With our application we can add value to their burgeoning ventures. LALA World does not have the typical enterprise’s goal, but intends to extends its hand in supporting women entrepreneurship.

“Women belong in all places where decisions are being made… It shouldn’t be that women are the exception.” —Ruth Bader Ginsburg

While we talk about women empowerment, it is still in its progressive stages in the society. In India, a large percentage of women enterprises are micro enterprises that women undertake as an economic activity. These micro-enterprises can be classified into farm and off-farm. In rural India, traditionally, a lot of women primary-producers can be classified as entrepreneurs. For instance, “Lijjat Papad” legacy of drying papad (poppadom) on their roof tops, and the revolutionary “White Revolution” famously known as “Amul” created a national milk grid that linked milk producers throughout India with the millions of consumers, acting as a bedrock to ensure livelihood and cutting out the middlemen. All these initiatives were to give a thrust to women entrepreneurship.

Family responsibilities, traditional social norms, and the patriarchal structure limit women’s exposure to the outside world. These women face various challenges due to gender-based barriers to start and grow their businesses which include discrimination in property laws, matrimonial responsibilities, inheritance laws and/or cultural practices, lack of access to education, formal finance systems, limited mobility, poor access to information and networks, etc. This restricts their development and mobility, making them dependent and almost impossible to reach the market. Middlemen in the business chain exploits women financially due to the opacity of the entire chain of demand and supply. As a consequence, women end up losing a great deal at all ends. This increases inefficiency and insecurity in the system for a businesswoman. They are unaware about the status on payments and are unable track their finances. As a result, they end up feeling helpless in that aspect of business deals. Women also need encouragement in generating capital for their businesses on their own without being dependent on anyone.

Blockchain enterprises like LALA World can bring great prospects for women running micro or small SMEs through this exclusive decentralized financial ecosystem. The application of decentralized technology has no boundaries. Women can successfully bypass the inherently recondite and lengthy procedures associated with traditional financial transactions.
From securing personal records from money transactions to payments- women entrepreneurship can benefit immensely from the LALA World initiative.

LALA Transfer can provide a secure way to complete financial transactions, which could bring financial services to women entrepreneurs who are still without a bank account. Importantly, payments made with LALA Transfer can cost less in peer-to-peer transaction without third-party intermediaries. Likewise, the no costs associated to get on the LALA World App may become a significant bridge to create entry for women having vision for their own business. Within the LALA World App, person with the LALA ID can use it as a global unique identification.

LALA Lend will provide a platform where the lending process becomes low-priced, short & efficient. It will also eliminate the role of intermediates.

Conventional methods of fundraising like VC will always be present. But applying for these high profiles financial bodies is difficult. Due to biased land and inheritance law in developing countries, women face challenges in providing quality collateral for the loan. The process thus becomes lengthy, expensive, and not worthy of the hassle. However, our LALA Lend application highlights an opportunity for women to receive a collateral free loan easily.

LALA World Financial Accessibility with ease

Moving abroad? Whether you are going for a job, planning to settle, study or just traveling for an extended period of time, it is a complicated task. Anyone who tells you otherwise is either lying or in a private jet. The experience of changing countries can be thrilling, stimulating, and eye-opening, but it can also be unbelievably challenging in a number of ways that go far beyond learning to cope with different cultures.

Leaving the country, What is the first thing that comes to your mind?

Packing, Stay and most importantly Money…

Unfortunately, packing is something you would have to manage on your own!!

We shall discuss how managing your finance abroad is so time-consuming, tedious, and difficult. How implementation of Blockchain technology in a financial ecosystem can help a lot in this direction.

Below is the finance-related checklist required when one is changing countries or even moving to a different country for a significant amount of time.

  1. Calculating monetary conversion: Finding out that Danish Krone is equal to USD 0.15 can be a revelation. A person has to estimate the prices of essential things beforehand. It is a lot of effort going online and making a list of important things with their prices. Further recalculating and coming to an amount, which sometimes might just not be enough.
  2. What if your credit card does not work there. Most of the European banks have switched to the more secure chip-and-PIN technology, and magnetic strip cards are now mostly outdated in countries.
  3. Visit ATM or Bank in the new country: How will it feel if you step foot in a new country and the first thing you have to do is rush to find an ATM or a Bank, while all you’re dreaming about is either a bed or a beach. As the conversion centers in the airport or around the city tend to be huge rip-offs. You know that at the ATM or the bank, and the conversion will be exact.
  4. Local cash should be filled in your pockets. Not every place takes credit cards. This is especially important if you’re catching trains or buses.
  5. You have to pre-inform your Bank or Credit card provider. If in case you forget to do it.  Sometimes banks think that fraud may be occurring as transactions are happening in Bali when you’re from Toronto, and they will turn off your card as a security measure.

Allow us to explain why LALA World App can make a difference in your travel. LALA World can offer a quick solution. So, this time along with your favorite music app for your travel, download LALA World App too.

LALA WORLD will free you from all the hassle by offering you a true companion that is LALA World App. The app is available on Google Play Store.

With LALA as a thoughtful companion, it helps provide remittance at less cost and eliminate the role of intermediaries, making the process instant and pain-free.

LALA World Decrypts Myths About Blockchain

Majority of the population around the world find it difficult to embrace emerging technologies. Due to the volatility of Bitcoin, users and significant investors of the world are skeptical about the future implications of the technology that underpins it. Discussions with incomplete and inaccurate information have created a cloud of misconceptions and myths about the deployment of Blockchain technology.

This article is an effort to clear the air by enlightening readers about the benefits of Blockchain and to eradicate the myths about it.

  1.    People usually confuse Blockchain with Bitcoin

Bitcoin is the first word that triggers people to think about Blockchain. Blockchain is the technology that underpins the cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, and it is just a small attribute of Blockchain that enables peer-to-peer transactions.

  1.    Blockchain’s only application is Cryptocurrency

It’s widely believed by many that cryptocurrency is the only use case of Blockchain. However, it has much to offer. Blockchain has many use cases that are derived from its features such as immutability, transparency, and security.

  1. Information on Blockchain is not public

Contrary to popular belief, the majority of Blockchain transactions are traceable and transparent. Additionally, there are no hidden secrets to Blockchain and its operations. All the information encapsulated in the block is public to all participants on the Blockchain.

  1. Blockchain can only be used in the financial sector

Blockchain has many applications in the financial industry because of its nature.  However, there are many relevant use cases of Blockchain including Real Estate, Pharmaceutical, Freight, Online Booking, etc. Where ever there is a value chain, Blockchain can create a difference with its strategic deployment and hence help in the exchange of value.

  1. Cryptocurrencies are for Criminals

Some people misinterpret that Blockchain technology is only dropping cryptocurrencies which are deduced from decentralized platforms, its ambiguity and anonymous nature can only benefit people ditching law. But what people don’t know is that the digital wallet facilities also requires certain regulations to be complied with.

In an economically or politically unstable environment, if a person is feeling insecure and lacks trust in banks, then, Blockchain based financial ecosystem can be of great help.

Blockchain is commonly compared to the internet in terms of its disruptive nature and technological significance. However, unlike the internet, various Blockchains can be designed to serve different purposes. The prevalence of this misconception has greatly waned with the rise and increasing popularity of other Blockchain networks beyond Bitcoin.

Japan’s invisible migrant workers

Japans invisible migrant population

Japan boasts the third largest economy in the world, and since the late 1990s, the growth in Japan’s real GDP per head has outperformed every other major economy. Most of its residents enjoy excellent health care services, an amazingly punctual transportation system, access to lightning-fast fiber-optic internet services, and many more of the luxuries one would expect from such a technology-focused society.

Japan also presents an intriguing destination for travelers with its mix of the old and new. Skyscrapers covered with massive neon signs and television screens line the streets of the larger cities, however, walk a little further and you’re likely to come across a traditional shrine or temple nestled away among the hustle and bustle. It’s not unusual to see women dressed in kimonos – sometimes for formal events and other times simply to add an extra dimension to their sightseeing experiences.

The majority of people living outside of Japan learn about this fascinating country mainly through researching their next holiday, and through their experiences, once they arrive. However, tourism information and experiences are naturally designed to focus only on the positive aspects of a country or region. Most people come to and leave Japan as tourists, and thus typically remain unaware of the underlying problems within Japanese society.

There were a number of factors that influenced my own decision to move to Japan, where I am currently living. Perhaps the largest factor was the similarities I felt between my own personality and that of Japanese. I was also looking for a change in my life. I, like many others before me, saw Japan through rose-tinted glasses: as an oasis of enjoyment, new opportunities, friendly people, and hassle-free living. In many cases, these are true; however, there are also several aspects I could (and often do) complain about in regards to Japanese society. My experience has taught me that there is no such thing as a perfect country. And Japan is no exception – in particular in regards to its treatment of migrant workers.

Japan is currently faced with a super-aging population, which is also decreasing. Healthy lifestyles and access to excellent healthcare are among the many factors which have seen the life expectancy of the Japanese rise to around 83 years. There are now approximately 68,000 people aged over 100 in Japan. The reason for this super-aging phenomenon is that not enough babies are being born to sustain the current population (around 125 million). Last year marked the second year in which less than 1 million (946,060) babies were born in Japan; the lowest number since records began in 1899. During the same year, there were 1.3 million deaths, meaning that Japan’s population decreased by 394,373 people in 2017 – equivalent to the population of a small city. Currently, approximately one-quarter of Japan’s population is aged 65 years or older. If nothing is done, this is predicted to increase to more than one third by 2040, and around 40% by 2060.

In such a rapidly aging society, the immense financial pressure is placed on a shrinking working-age population which must support the elderly. Various measures have been proposed and some are underway to help alleviate this pressure within Japan. These include the use of robots and AI, increasing the age of retirement, making it easier for the elderly to continue working, and increasing the number of migrant workers.

This month, in recognition of the need to boost the number of migrant workers in Japan, Prime Minister Abe announced plans to bring in 500,000 workers by 2025. These workers will fill chronic labor shortages in farming, construction, accommodations, and elderly care. According to the Justice Ministry, Japan currently has approximately 1,083,769 migrant workers. Many of these workers are admitted to the country on specialist or skilled worker visas, allowing them to work as engineers or teachers. They generally enjoy good wages and are treated relatively fairly (though many claim they have experienced discrimination).

A large number of migrant workers are also brought in to provide unskilled labor (not technically allowed within Japan) such as factory and farming work, under the guise of “technical intern trainees” and even “foreign students”. Such workers are much more likely to be paid unfair wages and be forced into unfair working and living conditions.

Japan’s Technical Intern Training Program was originally established in 1993, aiming to contribute to the international community by teaching people from developing countries skills based on Japanese technology and know-how. The interns would then take their new knowledge back to their home countries, benefiting both their homelands and Japan. However, the system has been abused by Japanese companies, who have used it as a means to employ migrant workers to perform unskilled labor at very low wages (much lower than what Japanese people are willing to work for). The program’s stated goal of developing skills among foreign nationals has seemingly been pushed aside, as most companies’ focus has been solely on remaining competitive.

In one case, A 28-year-old woman from Myanmar arrived in Japan in November 2016 under the program to work in a sewing factory. She had hoped to gain knowledge and skills in sewing while earning money for her family back home by working at a Japanese company. Her hopes were soon dashed when she was assigned to produce car seat covers, not make clothes as told by an agent in Myanmar before coming to Japan. She worked for more than eight hours a day, six days a week, for five months. However, after all of her hard work, she was paid an insulting ¥339,000 (around US$600 per month); much lower than the legal minimum wage.

Similar to other countries’ systems, “trainees” in this program are not allowed to change their job or employer even if they find their work situation is not what they were promised. Many trainees have no choice but to keep working in unfair conditions.

In another case, in March this year, the Justice Ministry was investigating allegations by a Vietnamese man that he was made undertake decontamination work in radioactive areas following the 2011 Fukushima nuclear disaster. This man was also brought to Japan under the intern program described above and was reportedly not informed that he would be undertaking work in contaminated areas. Given that Vietnam does not have any nuclear power plants, it’s highly unusual that his technical training in Japan would even include decontamination. The Japan Times was able to access records showing the man had indeed been exposed to radiation while working, and according to the labor union the employer had withheld this information from him. The employer also reportedly denied the man additional allowances provided to those working under hazardous conditions. Furthermore, he was being paid almost three times less than Japanese workers who were doing the same job.

There is a pervasive undertone within Japanese society that Japan is for Japanese people – not foreigners. News headlines such as “What will happen if foreigners become our bosses?” and “Before we realized it, Japan has become a nation of immigrants” can be seen from the more conservative and alarmist media outlets. And that’s fine – societies are entitled to question whether migrant workers are needed and to preserve their culture and ethnicity. However, if a government decides to invite migrant workers into its country to help improve the economic situation, it has a responsibility to accept – and promote the broader acceptance of – those people politically and socially, not simply economically.

Many people believe that migrant workers only experience hardships while working in countries with poor human rights records. However, as explained in this article, that is clearly not the case. Migrant workers are taken advantage of even in seemingly advanced societies such as Japan. The more often these issues are exposed, the more likely it is that positive change will occur.
