Mumbai: Equitas Small Finance Bank unveils the inspiring journey of Virumandi, a beacon of determination and resilience under the 'Circle of Life' campaign. The video exemplifies his spirit of unwavering dedication and the belief that 'work is worship', while showcasing his life’s transcending challenges.
Starting as a mechanic in Madurai, his aspirations were met with setbacks when he struggled to meet the financial obligations of a loan obtained from a traditional financial institution, ultimately losing his cherished vehicle. Undeterred by adversity, he embraced the ethos of hard work as his guiding principle, determined to provide for his family in the face of adversity. As his unwavering efforts came to light, Equitas Small Finance Bank joined his journey to resolve the hardships as a partner in financial support as well as overall prosperity.
