Hello, 

I am writing this email to ask for your support and kind help - if you have any contacts who can spend sometime and gather these information from different place it would be very very nice.

There is a simple, easy and cheap tool that can help identify the denomination of Indian currency to the blind people. I am doing a required need assessment to find out if this tool is really required by blind people or not. 

We often think twice before a financial transaction - just imagine how the blind population do it!!! 

Indian market doesn't have any tool that can empower blind people to identify Indian currency  and that too all by them self. Without having to put trust in every other person and this saves lot of time. 

Do you know how these people identify the currency - by smelling, by the texture and by feeling the paper.. wow - this tool will make things more easier for them. The tool is handy and can be easily kept in pocket or wallet.

Kindly help me in gathering information so that based on the real picture we can launch this tool as soon as possible. We need the information from the blind people because they would be using the tool. 

Thank you soo much for your time and support. Looking ahead to hear from you.

Thanking you,
Regards,
Anand
