Fintrex rolls out finance options for three-wheel drivers

Fintrex Finance Ltd., rolled out an island wide campaign focusing on empowering Sri Lanka’s youth to be economically independent through self-employment. Specifically targeting three-wheel drivers, the campaign, titled ‘saadarayen piliganimu’ translated to ‘you are most welcome’ or ‘unkalukku nalvaru’ is a promise to help them obtain convenient hassle-free financing at any of the Fintrex dealers island wide while showing them respect as responsible citizens.

For years, three-wheel drivers have been considered to be some of the most maligned road users and are generally presumed to be illiterate and uncivil. Despite the great service they offer as a quick-hire and cheap option for travel, most of these drivers are considered to be a public nuisance with no sense of road rules or courtesy to other drivers or their passengers. 

“No one understands how hard we have to work to make ends meet,” said Rohana, a local three-wheel driver. “Most other vehicle users consider us to be uneducated and a nuisance on the roads. Although some drivers can be callous and reckless, most of us are just trying to improve our livelihoods, educate our children, put food on the table and live a respectable life.”

Launched across major towns and cities across the nation, ‘saadarayen piliganimu’ offers new and existing three-wheeler owners and their families options for financing of new vehicles inclusive of hospitalisation covers and lease protector covers that will benefit them and their families in any emergency situation. “By and large, they are responsible, respectable and hardworking people who are trying to make ends meet for their families,” said Fintrex Finance CEO Tamara Dharmakirti-Herath. “We believe that by giving them the respect they deserve we can help change the way they act and behave and most importantly, perceived.” 

The campaign primarily offers three-wheel drivers very affordable and incentivised financing options. From the moment they enter any Fintrex Finance office, they will be treated with the utmost respect, their documents will be processed with speed and with the least amount of inconvenience along with great financing options.

Along with the quick and convenient service, Fintrex offers a host of other free giveaways including lease protector, hospitalisation cover and money-back for every instalment paid on time as well as three free brand-new tyres.

Fintrex Finance is a trusted finance provider with a vision of supporting and empowering ‘financial entrepreneurs’ to become ‘experts’ in their chosen fields. “Our brand identity reflects the company’s potential to maximise efforts and unlock the understated value for our customers,” said Dharmakirti-Herath. 

Owned by Bluestone 1, and backed by a consortium of world class investors, Fintrex Finance provides easy-to-get motor vehicle leases for brand new, unregistered or registered cars, dual-purpose vehicles, medium commercial vehicles, three wheelers and motor bicycles.
