Dastgyr is a B2B marketplace with embedded financing, connecting underserved mom & pop retailers in Pakistan directly to suppliers to solve for a currently fragmented supply chain.
The retail sector of Pakistan is one of the fastest-growing industries and contributes 30-40% to the national GDP. As it stands, over 2 million retailers in this $120 billion market remain underserved and unbanked, along with millions more in other similar emerging markets. Dastgyr aims to empower and uplift this segment by providing a near-perfect supply solution coupled with financial inclusion.
With Dastgyr, retailers can order inventory from a complete marketplace of goods with next-day delivery and telephonic helpline support. Upon checkout, approved retailers now have the option to buy now, pay later through microlending solutions from a credit marketplace.
Within one year of operations, Dastgyr has scaled its operations up to serve 40,000+ retailers in Karachi and Lahore. The company has launched the first of several planned products in fintech: BNPL. It also remains one of the most capital-efficient startups in the region.
