“Our mission is to provide one billion people access to powerful financial products at a lower cost, faster and more conveniently.

With GenX growing up and 40% of millennials in India, there is an immense opportunity for helping people to have faster and cheaper access to credit. We want to empower people to use their digital profiles and personality traits to increase their financial options,” said Shah.
