Our mission is to maximise the financial well-being of every individual and every enterprise by providing complete access to financial services in remote rural India.
About Dvara KGFS

Dvara KGFS was incorporated in August 2008 by Dvara Trust, a private trust set up with the mission “to ensure that every individual and every enterprise has complete access to financial services.” Dvara KGFS works towards achieving this goal through its network of branches in remote rural areas that offer a range of financial products and services. The organisation instils this mission into its business by facilitating and originating financial products and services through a unique branch-based business model called Kshetriya Gramin Financial Services (KGFS), which translates to “Regional Rural Financial Services.”
