In a nation like Pakistan, where a large majority of people are living paycheck to paycheck, the need for credit is evident, but access to it hasn’t always been easy. With customer-centric options lacking, Omair Ansari, our guest on episode seven of the Fintech Founders Series, dived into how he built a platform that allows employees to have access to their salary in real-time.

The insightful discussion along with our hosts, Ronit Ghose and Gaurav Dhar underlined how though a massively unbanked nation presents huge opportunities, “coming in with a fancy product, which you think is going to help the masses, doesn’t do anything”. To create the right product in a primarily cash-driven economy you need to understand what is a manual pain point that exists in the country that you can digitalise and then consumer demand will accelerate. Having a collaborative relationship with banks will also create new avenues of growth.

As Omair said,

If at a click of a button you can order a car, if at a click of a button you can order food, why can’t you on a click of a button order your salary today when you’ve worked already.

Omair Ansari, CEO of Abhi (YC S21)
