Business objective will be to overcome poverty, or one or more problems (such as education, health, technology access, and environment) which threaten people and society; not profit maximization

 

Financial and economic sustainability

 

Investors get back their investment amount only. No dividend is given beyond investment money

 

When investment amount is paid back, company profit stays with the company for expansion and improvement

 

Environmentally conscious

 

Workforce gets market wage with better working conditions

 

…do it with joy
