The company aims to acquire 25 million customers in the next two years.

“Larger loan requirements for both individuals and SMEs are serviced by the ‘realme PaySa’ teams present in different cities.

The brand has entered into strategic co-development partnerships with Early Salary (for digital personal loans), Lending Kart (for digital business loans) and Credit Mantri (for free credit report).

According to Tarun Pathak, Associate Director at Counterpoint Research, it is a good attempt but it will be part of larger ecosystem-level approach for Realme.

“Realme has a good installed base in India which the brand will look to monetize sooner or later. Fintech segment is important to crack as smartphone ASP in India is increasing,” Pathak told IANS.

“Aspirational value for flagships run high so bridging the gap between aspirational and affordability in India is a good business opportunity,” he added.
