A Reserve Bank of India (RBI) registered category ‘A’ Non-Banking Finance Company – Asset Finance Company (NBFC-AFC) with rural and semi-rural financing at the center of its business model, Arman provides affordable financing with simple, no-hassle loan products.

By enabling affordable personal mobility via two-wheeler and three-wheeler financing, Arman promises a better life to the middle-class and emerging middle-class, and helps families move up the economic ladder.
