India’s largest agent banking platform, PayNearby is happy to formally announce its partnership with Sub-K Impact Solutions Ltd (Sub-K), a leading player facilitating loans, savings and payments to underbanked households and micro-enterprises. The partnership will work towards enhancing shared goals of the two organizations, who are committed to enabling financial inclusiveness and economic wellbeing of the country’s masses. Partnership with PayNearby will help Sub-K harness an additional network of 10 lakh+ retail agent outlets, adding scale and efficiency in their lending and cash collection businesses.
Retail customers and collection staff of Sub-K can walk into any PayNearby outlet, spread across 17,000 plus PIN codes in the country and deposit cash hassle free. The partnership will allow customers of the low-income cohort, who often find it difficult to deposit low denomination transactions, now to do so at a store nearby. Physical cash deposited by customers and staff will be digitally converted and settlement processed even after banking hours, every day of the week. Quick settlement and a single unified cash collection dashboard offered by PayNearby will help Sub-K drive efficiency and cost optimization in the collection processes.
Commenting on this partnership, Mr. Anand Kumar Bajaj, MD & CEO, PayNearby said, “We are happy to partner with Sub-K in this journey. Both organizations share a similar ideology of improving financial health of the country’s underserved by making financial services accessible at the last mile. We hope our efforts into simplifying high end technology, so that it is widely usable and a growing network of PayNearby Digital Pradhans, will add efficiency and scale to Sub-K’s businesses.”

Thumuluri, MD & CEO, Sub-K IMPACT Solutions said, “We are very delighted to join hands with PayNearby in our combined journey towards a financially included India. We believe that this partnership has the potential to greatly release cash management stress from our microfinance operations.
