The end-user experience will further be eased out under his expertise through the provision of innovative financial products such as personal line of credit/digital credit cards.
Within the next five years, Gaurav envisions establishing MyLoanCare as a leading brand known by its reputation as the most trustworthy distributor of retail financial services and products with a pan-India presence.
