Indian consumer finance venture focusing on financial inclusion

NIRA is a consumer finance business that offers small ticket loans to working Indians on low incomes. There are millions of Indians that can’t access credit from banks and are forced to turn to expensive money lenders at their time of need. It doesn’t need to be this way. NIRA is now a part of India finals of the AWS Startup Architecture Challenge 20'20. We are looking to build simple, easy to use, transparent products that immediately deliver value to our customers by granting them financial flexibility. While the user experience must be clear and seamless, the credit scoring and decisioning will be underpinned by sophisticated analysis. NIRA went live in 2018 and is now growing very quickly. We’re doing something right; NIRA is backed by the most prestigious accelerators in India: Techstars and Google Launchpad. Bringing financial products to the masses is one of the most important (and exciting) challenges the country faces. If you’re looking for work with a purpose and want to be part of a high quality team, then this could be the right place for you.
