That’s what we do at Avail Finance.

These include your guards, maids, cooks, cab drivers, delivery guys etc.; people that we interact with on a day to day basis. We realized that with the increase in their digital footprint, we can leverage the power of technology to find out their risk worthiness and serve them financially. We have already impacted over 1 lakh + such families through our platform and are building for the next 400 million.
The problem is a data first problem to solve. We collect data from a wide variety of data sources and use the power of machine learning to build their credit profiles. Servicing these 400 million people is not possible without building a scalable platform and handling a massive amount of data.
We’re looking for someone who is passionate about technology and how it can be leveraged to solve the problem for masses of India.
