Culture Snapshot
It is noteworthy that most of the workforce at the field level are hired from the same communities they serve, which in turn positively impacts the level of commitment and passion towards their work as well as the social development initiatives they are involved with, at the individual level. All in all, a holistic development through employment generation (their employees), income generation (their customers), and financial inclusion (both) of the underserved section of the society.
