Anjan Chowdhury, chairman of Dmoney said, “In Bangladesh we have a huge Sharia base of customers and our mission is to cater to the needs of these customers, addressing their demands.”

Chowdhury  said ,“Dmoney aims to focus in three areas: inclusion - leaving no one behind from unbanked to religious, digitization from government to ordinary citizens and empowerment from urban to rural.”
