    The vernacular-friendly myKinara App offers an easy 3-step process to small business entrepreneurs taking them from instant eligibility check to digital loan disbursement within 24-hours. The #JadejaBatsForKinara ad series promoting myKinara App is expanded into various formats and languages, including Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, Gujarati & Marathi. The ads are primarily running on social media channels including YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, in 6-sec, 15-sec, and 30-sec versions, and are scheduled to run on other mediums such as OTT, in-app advertising, and ShareChat.

    Kinara Capital’s exclusive Brand Ambassador Ravindra Jadeja said, “Batting for the success of small business entrepreneurs has always been the foundation of Kinara Capital. I grew up in a humble neighborhood surrounded by many small businesses that were a recognized part of the community. I understand and acknowledge the importance of that one helping hand to nudge you to the next level. So, I am proud to represent the value that myKinara App holds for small businesses.”

    Created and produced by Lintas C:EX for Kinara Capital, the #JadejaBatsForKinara ads were filmed in Bangalore with an original background music score composed to give the ads a catchy tune. In the ads, Jadeja swooshes in to replace the uninterested traditional lender who has a lengthy, paper-intensive process with a fresh, digital approach of the myKinara App that uplifts the small business entrepreneurs by addressing their pain points. The mix of humour and veracity of the #JadejaBatsForKinara campaign ads enhance the high value of myKinara for MSMEs.

    Satish Ramanathan, Executive Director, Lintas C:EX, said, “The task for us was to create short, digital-friendly, impactful content that showcases the importance of the myKinara App in a memorable manner. We wanted to take a definitive positioning for Kinara Capital that is owned for the long term. The ad succinctly captures the struggle of the entrepreneur and the swift solution offered by myKinara. Jadeja also synced well with the message that we were trying to highlight with his sense of humour and apt delivery.”

    Kinara Capital is revolutionizing the business growth of MSMEs by making access to formal credit much easier with its myKinara App. The #JadejaBatsForKinara ad campaign aims to raise awareness among small business entrepreneurs across the MSME sectors of Manufacturing, Trading, and Services to access reliable business financing at their fingertips via the myKinara App.
