DVMelite began in the dusty grain markets of India while Dr. Warren was working as a veterinarian to mend the wounds and health of camels used for local transportation.
These camel owners were small business people just like our more familiar veterinary practice owners in North America, and though the environment they worked in was vastly different, the same fundamental business challenges faced both parties…

In that moment Dr. Warren realized there were two ways to make a difference:
Dedicate his personal labor towards supporting the camels for example (as he was at that moment)
OR build an organization which could develop the resources to make a potentially larger impact.
As a veterinarian, Dr. Warren realized that veterinary clinics were the exact kind of small business that needed the help, so with entrepreneurial zeal he plunged into building a team and a business model with 3 purposes:
Transform the often stagnating business of veterinary clinics into a model which provides success for the owner, staff, and the community
Build an internal team and culture which could create real positive impact in the world
Integrate the process of social contribution directly into the business model, so that not only veterinary practices, but entrepreneurs around the world could benefit from the success in the form of micro credit loans funded on behalf of each client.

Maria spends her days among the flowers. She is a micro-entrepreneur in Mosquera, a small municipality of Cundinamarca. As an employee of a flower company she had years of experience of the industry and decided in 2015 to set up her own flower business named in honor of her mother. Not only does she offer services around her primary flower business but she has now expanded into selling candles, essences and aromatic herbs.
Maria is separated. Her #1 priority is to provide for her two children, aged 16 and 12. She wants to provide them with the best chance of receiving a great education and living a life that she could only dream of when she was growing up.
We are delighted to report her business is still going strong, something that would not have been possible without the loan.
