NBFCs Target Rural Markets to Maintain Their Share of Gold Loans

NBFCs are trying hard to grow their function in the rural and semi-urban parts of the country. New fields, like building a non-gold portfolio, are being explored and expanded while adding more gold-loan branches in the under-banked segments.

As per experts, there is a huge potential that is available outside the circuit of formal financial companies. Most customers and loan seekers in this section, have short-term capital needs, and with the NBFCs (Non-Banking Financial Companies) offering quicker and hassle-free loan disbursals, they are often preferred more than traditional banks. But at the same time, NBFCs face competition from banks when it comes to gold loans, which they are striving hard to work on.
