The genesis of Nivara Home Finance Limited is traced to C V Rao and Sunil Rohokale, professional colleagues for two decades and veterans in the retail banking industry, primarily in the housing finance & real estate sectors.
It all started over a telephonic conversation between the two during the Spring of 2014 where both felt the need to pursue their passion; leverage their experience and unique ideas to create a lasting, well-respected organization in the affordable housing finance business. Subsequently, the company Nivara Home Finance Limited was born and has as its promoters C V Rao, Sunil Rohokale and a group of like-minded professionals having decades of rich experience in this field.
