U GRO Capital Plans To Double Workforce By The End Of FY 2022

U Gro Capital has announced plans to ramp up its current employee strength of 500-550 to 1000-plus by the end of FY 2022.


The new hiring will take place in the tier 3-4 regions in the states of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Telangana and Karnataka. 

The company aims to expand its network of 34 branches to 100 by the end of FY 2022. It will be adding 50 'micro' branches in the mentioned locations, to extend formal credit to the micro businesses.


Complementing the geographical expansion, the company has planned to more than double its employee strength. With the count increasing rapidly, U GRO Capital recently crossed the 550 employee mark.

The hiring, which also includes a significant portion of campus recruitment, will help create employment opportunities for the homegrown workforce in these tier 3-4 regions. The entire hiring process will be executed virtually right from recruitment to onboarding and induction.

The hires, hence, will be made across multiple departments such as strategy, treasury, operations, finance, technology, human resources, sales, credit, staffing, and marketing, amongst others. The guiding imperative is to build a robust organizational structure with the right mix of human and technological capabilities, to resonate with the growing business.


On the diversity and inclusion front, the company aims to achieve a gender ratio of 20% by FY 2022 doubling the rate from 10% currently. The work has already started as the company is recruiting women at key leadership positions.

We have now set on our aspirational growth journey and scaling up of our current ~550 members' strong team to 1000 is a critical aspect.
