Our knowledge of micro-market and emphasis on the secured small ticket size loan in Tier II, III & IV cities led to a significant growth in the business. Compared to the scenario in the first two quarters of the year, the second half of the year saw us flex towards our visionary growth. Our financial prudency coupled with other measures including regulatory policies has helped us widen our credit reach for the financial inclusion while maintain a healthy asset quality.”
