That’s we follow the Mantra: Na Sirf Bachao Munafa Bhi Kamao” Kanchan also believes in being socially responsible and apart from managing CompareMunafa.com, she is associated with SUIT (Societal Upliftment Initiative Trust) as a Treasurer, which works towards upliftment of Underprivileged Children.

Learning her way through the curve, Kanchan was instrumental in rolling out CompareMunafa.com to address the need gap prevailing in the industry. Her greatest inspiration is her father. She has learnt the basics of business from her father and his rich value system have made her the person she is today. He once told her a famous quote – “If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” He has taught her nothing is impossible and we should never give up in life. He is not only an inspiration but also a mentor and her biggest strength.
