Rha Tshering and Nedup are old friends from Dr Graham’s. They are at colleges far apart in Gangktok and Kolkata. But just now they are together doing an internship with Ujjivan Small Finance Bank in New Town in Kolkata. They started on the 18th of December and will complete on 9 of February (7 weeks). Their placement is at the Head Office of Ujjivan Small Finance Bank of the Eastern Region of India which controls 126 branches. At first they were going to the office and getting to know the overall work of every department in the office, and by now they will have been assigned a task or project.

We are sure they will have a great time, and we wish them every success!
