  • In 2022, they started a new venture which lent people loans for purchasing old cars. In an interview, Anurag talked about this venture and said,

    For new cars, there are so many agencies for loans. But that was not the case for used cars. That gave us the idea of creating a platform with 15 agencies dealing with loans. At the back end, we tied up with banks and in the front, we joined hands with dealers. Earlier, the loan approval rate for used cars was 40 per cent. But with so many people to lend to, it shot up to 75 per cent. From 12-15 days approval, we reduced it to 3 days using technology.”
