Purple Finance Strategic Rural Marketing For Business Loans


Businesses need capital at every stage to sustain and grow. Opting for Business loans is thus the preferred option, without having to request loan from friends, family or the local money-lender. While it’s easier for urban business units to raise capital from financial institutions, the rural businesses don’t have easy exposure to business loans on account of multiple reasons.

Thus these unserved, low-Banked locations, with immense potential, miss out on the opportunity to grow fast. And herein lies a massive opportunity which Purple Finance wanted to tap.


The project brief given to us was to develop a strategic marketing plan for Purple Finance, aimed at enhancing their brand identity, creating brand visibility and engagement, generating leads, promoting their branches, and increasing their PR value.

Activity Flow

 Designing attractive stickers and posters to promote the brand.

Branding and engaging with customers through a branded van.

Displaying posters at strategic locations.

Distributing leaflets to raise awareness and generate leads.

The farmers who visited the van were engaged in a game of cricket, which tested the knowledge of the farmers on the features offered by Purple Finance.

The gamification route adopted got massive engagements from the farmers and helped in explaining the benefits of Purple’s finance offer.

The creatives highlighted the smart aspect of business which involved Strategic thinking, Problem-solving abilities, Financial acumen, etc. The field Executives stressed these aspects during interactions with the TA and linked them to raising capital to grow. Once the idea and the need to raise capital to expand business was established, the solutions provider was also made available – Purple Finance.
