80 pc of addressable low, moderate income market remains untapped by fintechs: Study

New Delhi, Aug 13 (UNI) Most financial technology (fintech) target affluent and tech-literate customers in tier-1 geographies and leave 80 per cent of the addressable low and moderate-income (LMI) households market untapped.
