We had a fantastic month of October thanks to the loans that were made possible by our platform. Additionally, our verticals for digital payments expanded significantly, with a monthly transaction volume of more than 37 crores. We’ll keep serving the requirements of both consumers and merchant partners, and maintaining long-term profitability across all of our business lines will remain our primary strategic goal.

We’ll concentrate on growing our lending, POS, and soundbox companies in the upcoming months. We will prioritize the growth of our consumer and NBFC businesses while simultaneously focusing on the introduction of new products designed specifically for our merchant clients.”
