Commenting on the successful operations in Kolkata, Manav Jeet, MD & CEO – Rubique said, “The lack of options when it comes to accessing finance has been a major bottleneck for Kolkata-based SMEs and aspiring businessmen in the past couple of years. They have been striving to make the best of the economic opportunity that the state offers but don’t have access to reliable, transparent and time-efficient sources of finance to fulfill their goals. This is what makes the state a key market for us and we are thrilled with the overwhelming response we have received from the city through our growing business associate network. All this was made possible through our latest technology adoption and increasingly digitised processes which offer better approval ratios. With technology at the core of our vision, we are focused on serving more and more new and growing businesses across the region in the coming months.”
