There are limited banks that provide nominal value of credit cards. When we talk about young professionals who are looking for an alternative method for payments has no other solution.

A new concept takes some time to get common among masses. CASHe is the first unique mobile lending platform. In the next few months we will be able track the app popularity. It is available on Google Play for download. The app is launched and in few months we can track the amount of download, a number of people started using and those who are able to take benefit from the short term lending platform.
If a person does not repay the money, how CASHe can recover the amount –
Through CASHe we have comprehensive details of the person who is using the service. So we have the information to reach the person and persuade him/her for the payment. We will also use social media in it. We do not believe in using conventional methods for the recovery process used by lending business. We do have a provision to write off a certain amount in the form of settlement but that information will remain with the company.
