With customer centricity at its core, Yubi is carving its niche to build a first-of-its-kind unified lending infrastructure by becoming ubiquitous in the debt market ecosystem, much like UPI has accomplished in payments. I am thrilled to be a part of this epic journey and partake in this challenge of building the go-to large-scale technology platform for all things debt.”
