"The team at Shubham understood my requirement and provided me with exactly what I need"
- Naresh Kumar, General Store Owner
For Naresh, his working hours were long as his rented flat used to be at a distance from his shop. While trying to provide for his family, he was unable to give enough time to his wife and newborn son. He then decided that it was time for a chance and one day walked into a Shubham Branch office that is on his way to work. Today it takes him just a minute to reach his shop from home as he bought himself a 1 BHK flat just above the shop he owns and is able to spend ample time with his son.

Varthana Finance Pvt Limited
Varthana provides loans to affordable private schools in India. By focusing exclusively on this one sector, Varthana has gained a deep understanding of the challenges that these schools face, as well as the solutions that have been proven to work. More than 400 million student-aged children live in India, but only 260 million are currently enrolled in school. Even for those students who are enrolled, many attend under-funded and under-staffed public schools run by the government because they can't afford tuition for private schools. For years, entrepreneurs have been working to establish private schools that provide excellent instruction, but that are still accessible to low-income families. Currently, there are 200,000 affordable private schools in India, and they serve about 80 million students. Varthana works together with these organizations, ensuring that they have the capital to continue to expand and provide the best possible education for India's youth.
