Through hands-on engagement, individuals gain proficiency in specific tasks, techniques, and methodologies relevant to their field. These skills enable them to perform their duties efficiently, meet objectives, and deliver high-quality results. The more experience one acquires, the more refined and polished these skills become, leading to greater effectiveness and productivity in their professional endeavours.

Kishore Kumar joined Kinara in 2018 as a sales officer at the Hassan branch. He was drawn to Kinara because of the company’s mission to support small-scale businesses with collateral-free loans and wanted to be part of the process. He has since built a career in fieldwork, driven by the desire to interact with diverse customers and continually enhance his skills. His dedication and exceptional performance in the field led to a well-deserved promotion, and he now serves as the branch head.
Now he manages a 9-member team, helping field officers handle customer-related issues while also providing assistance with personal and professional matters. His responsibilities encompass a wide range of tasks, from overseeing cold calls and connecting with potential customers to managing collections and ensuring that customers fully understand the details of their transactions. He also enjoys his role in training new members, guiding them through data analysis, customer interaction, login procedures, document collection, and professional conduct. He witnesses their growth and development firsthand. Their positive responses and progress bring him joy and fulfilment.
One of Kishore's most notable work experiences was successfully achieving the sales target of Rs. 7.3 lakhs. His performance garnered recognition from his managers, earning him the prestigious Best Performer award.
He shares, "At Kinara, field work is extremely enriching, and there is so much to learn at every juncture. It's because of my experience as a sales officer that I’ve risen to the role of branch manager today. Kinara is the best place to work! There is open and friendly communication across all levels of management at Kinara. Whenever challenges or queries arise, I can reach out to anyone and receive a quick and supportive response."
Kishore is a travel enthusiast and he has discovered a hidden gem in the heart of nature: the houseboats of Munnar. Located in the picturesque state of Kerala, Munnar is renowned for its breathtaking landscapes, lush green tea plantations, and serene backwaters. However, it is the unique experience offered by the houseboats that has captured Kishore's heart and made it his favourite destination.
