An Interview With a Geosansar Customer
We asked a Geosansar customer some questions about how having a bank account has affected them.
Q: How did you manage your money before setting up a bank account with Geosansar?
My money was never safe. I either kept my money in my pocket or in a small box at home which I hid so that no one could find it. Sometimes I would loan it to my relatives. I found it difficult to sleep sometimes as I felt my money was not secure.
Q: Where did you find out about Geosansar?
They came to our factory and conducted a meeting. They told us why it was important to open a bank account.
Q: Why did you choose to open up a bank account with Geosansar?
They are very helpful and are just looking after people like me. Geosansar does not require many ID proofs. As I do not have proper ID documents I chose Geosansar as it is very easy to open a bank account with them.
Q: What was geosansar like when you went to them to help set up a bank account?
It was like a small branch of SBI [State Bank of India] and the people were nice
Q: How has geosansar helped with keeping your money?
Now that I have my account with Geosansar I keep all my money in this account as I feel it is very secure. I withdraw small amounts as and when I need them.
Q: How do you use your bank account?
Currently I use my bank account for my salary. I also use it for small savings. I use it for remitting money [sending money home] to my family in the village who have a SBI account there.
