Financial services space

A day before we reported that Indian e-commerce giant Flipkart is all set to enter the financial services space with a focus on offering credit and insurance products to both consumers and sellers on its platform. For this, the company has reportedly begun the process of applying for an NBFC (Non-Banking Financial Company) license and will commence its fintech services with microlending and micro-insurance for purchases on its website.
