The company continues to focus on small business owners and self-employed individuals primarily in the semi-urban and urban markets of India, as well as in rural markets where CRISIL expects faster growth in bank credit activity as financial awareness increases.

Also, the company focuses on enhancing its brand recall to attract new customers.
