CASHe, the leading credit-based financial wellness platform in India, aimed to enhance the borrowing journey for young middle-income consumers. The company sought to incorporate elements of mobility, transparency, agility, and personalization into their interactions. The product team’s objective was to facilitate direct communication, enabling salaried millennials to access economical financial services like instant personal loans, Buy-Now-Pay-Later, and Credit Lines. The goal was to use technology that makes accessing loans easy and hassle-free, so people have more control over their finances. The product team also realized the need of having an automated and digital channel like WhatsApp to provide sachet loans to millions of users across India.
