Nish Kotecha, founder of geosansar, pioneered the concept of financial inclusion in the supply chain in 2008. Companies across all sectors can expand access to financial services by engaging with workers in their supply chains.
With access to the majority of the developing world’s working poor, companies can use their supply chains to promote financial inclusion and improve workers’ livelihoods while reducing operational costs and increase productivity.
geosansar was established in April, 2010, as a financial services enterprise aimed at India's 600m+ 'unbanked' with a focus on the low-income labour employed in global supply chains. geosansar has implemented over 400+ programs across Indian and recently launched it’s activities in Bangladesh in partnership with BRAC (CED).
