Janalakshmi Financial Services: Let's get 'physital'

Jalakshmi Financial Services, set up in Bengaluru in 2008 by former Citibank senior executive Ramesh Ramanathan and his wife Swati, was started with a simple mandate: To run a scalable business that provides small loans to low-income borrowers in urban India. With over 5 million customers currently, borrowing on average between Rs 15,000 and Rs 50,000, it has stayed the course.

What has helped is Janalakshmi’s awareness that technology would play a vital role.

This provides software modules to run most parts of a bank’s operations.
