BENGALURU: Microsoft founder Bill Gates has heaped praise on a postmaster in the city, calling her “an incredible force for change”.

Praising the digital banking network in India, Gates wrote on LinkedIn about Kusuma K, a postmaster with India Posts Payments Bank saying, “I met an incredible force for change on my trip to India: Kusuma, a remarkable young woman working wonders at her local postal department”.

“India has been a leader in developing digital public infrastructure to accelerate inclusive financial development — enabling branch postmasters, like Kusuma, to use smartphone devices and biometrics to offer banking services to customers across India. She’s not just providing integrated financial services; she’s delivering hope and financial empowerment to her community”, Gates said.

Gates also shared a video link in the LinkedIn post which leads to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation page where a video explains about Kusuma and her work. “Learn more about the work Kusuma is doing here: #G20India”, he wrote.
