Sushil Kumar Aggarwal, Founder, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Aavas said, "When we started our journey in the year 2011, we had chosen unserved and unreached markets. At that time, around 70 per cent of our customers were new to credit and without a bureau score. So, we built domain expertise in customer profiling. This stood us in a good stead during the pandemic. Creating the right product mix and right assessment criteria, going relatively slow but sure, not choosing risky assets, and understanding customer behaviour through different cycles helped us navigate the time well, even though self-employed non professional customers account for 60 per cent of our portfolio."
