In India, approximately 70 Million people are underbanked. Of this, over 130 Million people have housing requirements; over 130 Million people have medical requirements; over 32 Million people have education requirements. Pages and pages can be written about other requirements. The aspirations are plenty, the means of fulfillment are unfortunately very limited.
All told, we're staring at the possibility of dealing with over 300 Million unfulfilled dreams.
That's why, we, at OpenTap decided to do something about it.
OpenTap was seeded with an audacious dream of bringing them into mainstream and giving impetus to the inclusivity dream. Be it inclusivity in education, access to technology / medical help, changed lifestyles or then simply, inclusivity in everyday scenarios.
It is an early stage fin-tech company working towards financial empowerment of the aspirational Indian population. We believe that we can eventually bridge gaps in the current banking system and ween people away from expensive credit options. Consequently, we have become an alternate source of finance with fairly competitive interest rates.
Within a span of 9 months, we have had the privilege of working with over 100 individuals to help fulfil some of their dreams. We will not rest until we know for sure that these individuals (and or their families) are well and truly on their way to becoming a part of the mainstream society. And we will not rest until we’ve given it our all towards building a better Tomorrow, together.
