The company opened eight new branches during the first quarter of the year in tier 2 and 3 towns including Edappadi, Ilayampalli, and Tuticorin in Tamil Nadu.
“Tier 2 and 3 towns are growing at a fast clip and we see this trend continuing in the near term. Over the last 12 months, we have opened up branches in a number of new locations. Our growth strategy will be to continue to pivot around the self-employed customer segment and smaller towns,” he added.
