The company had an AUM (asset under management) of ₹119 crore at the end of FY22.

Plans are afoot to touch an AUM of close to ₹1000 crore by the end of FY24 backed by a steady expansion in footprint into newer geographies and addition of new product categories.

It has a base of around 20,000 active borrowers at present. The company recently commenced operations in Chattisgarh and is also looking to foray into Gujarat during the current year and plans to add Bihar early next fiscal. It currently has 50 branches spread across Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh.

“We are looking to add 10 more branches in the next two months, taking the total number to 60 by the end of this fiscal. We plan to open 45 new branches next year, thereby taking the total branch network to over 100 by next fiscal,” Aggarwal told businessline.
