Mumbai: Aadhar Housing Finance’s distribution innovation, ‘Aadhar Mitra’, referral associates being the last-mile link to connect affordable home buyers and to bridge the financial inclusion gap between developed urban India and under-developed rural India per se, is receiving great response from the ground level. The low-cost, high impact distribution model, which has already won industry accolades, now has 6000+ ‘Aadhar Mitras’ who are unemployed or self-employed local youth with or without any knowledge of home Loan/financial industry. These ‘Aadhar Mitras’ will not only market the company’s home finance offerings but also will be one point contact for the local low-income or economically backward customers.

Aadhar Mitra Orientation Meet The company has done massive orientation drives across India in September to train and reconnect with these referral associates which included role-play based workshops, product and process training, sensitisation to the low-income segment and the role of Aadhar Mitras. Speaking on the initiative, Deo Shankar Tripathi, MD & CEO of Aadhar Housing Finance said, “Aadhar Mitra is not only a unique distribution model but also a sustainable social and economic upliftment model which is a win-win for each stakeholder. The company gets to reach the remote locations economically without opening a physical branch; it promotes financial inclusion and access to organised home finance for the rural & sub-urban low-income homebuyers, the local unemployed or self-employed youth also gets to enhance their income through successful referrals. This supports the government’s mission of ‘Housing for all by 2020’ in every possible way.
