Jaipur, 27th June 2019: Home Credit India, a leading Non-Banking Financial Company (NBFC) in consumer finance lending, with its commitment to drive financial inclusion in India, today announced its multi-city drive starting from Jaipur, to deepen its offerings in the country and broaden financial inclusion for Indians.

Home Credit offers consumer lending solutions that serve the unique needs of people with little or no credit history and first timer borrowers. Close to 50% of Home Credit's customers fall under the category of First Time Borrower (FTB) who have no credit history and who may be underserved.
Under the current initiative the company will be expanding its solutions for customers in the major cities of Rajasthan, with specific focus on Jaipur, Jodhpur and Kota thereby incentivizing inclusion of the largest sections of unbanked population in the state into the formal financial services sector.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Artem Popov - Chief Sales Officer, Home Credit India said, "Home Credit envisages that responsible borrowing comes only from responsibility through the lender. It is a symbiotic relationship with our customers that has become a benchmark for us, driven by trust, education, building confidence and helping people to live better and fulfil their aspirations or needs.
