Innovative housing for the urban poor | Rhea Silva | TEDxGSMC
Affordable housing is a challenge globally faced today, with about 235 million households worldwide suffering with housing poverty. Working on the same, Rhea founded Chototel, with a vision to deliver a product that will help change the way the world houses its people.
Watch as she ends up, disapproving the widely held perception that social businesses have to choose between profitability and purpose, but that they can find a balance.
Coming from a family immersed in real estate, Rhea Silva has seen land, finance and a lot more. But her vision is bigger, and by starting Chototel, she took her first steps in social enterprise. Chototel provides affordable housing for low-income families, and is making small steps in reducing homelessness, with expansions into the Indian market.
She maybe young, but her ideas have surely taken flight, and have impressed many.
