“We believe in impact-driven services in the sense that we do things that affect the life of the common man directly or indirectly… We have been doing that for the past three years now. So, Vestpay coming on board, we are also targeting the youths to help them save for the future. The loan aspect we are coming out with is different from what you see elsewhere. This one is impact-driven.”
