CASHe — a personal loan and credit line platform — has grown at a rapid clip in the post-pandemic period which is evident from its scale that crossed Rs 560 crore during the last fiscal year.

The company also earned Rs 17.16 crore via interest and gains on financial assets (non-operating income) in FY23. Including this, the company’s total income rose to Rs 577.75 crore during the year.
