"AGRIM, in Sanskrit stands for first, excellent, modern, best. The mantra of our affordable home loan solutions is to deliver excellence through giving dignity to the under-privileged customer with digitally intelligent access of 'find my home, finance my home, and enhance my livelihood. We are extremely glad that we are making a social impact to the under-privileged customers," mentioned AGRIM chief executive officer Dr. Malcolm Athaide, in a statement.

Based on their proprietary machine learning algorithms using traditional and non-traditional data, customers have real-time tracking of approval and disbursal, as compared to semi-digital experience amongst the competition.
