Thiru K.Chinnasamy and Smt.Devaki, his parents, are farmers from a traditional family. They raised their children with joy, courage, and enthusiasm.

While working for N.L.C., he used to look after his friend’s furniture shop in his spare time and introduced a hire purchase system. That was a great success in his business career; after that, he opened a bicycle mart and sold bicycles on an EMI basis. He discovered that many people in small businesses use chits to raise funds for their financial needs. He was also aware that N.L.C. employees are interested in chits to raise funds for unavoidable expenses. He made the decision to start chits for the benefit of his neighbours, colleagues, and entrepreneurs. He also lends money to those in need and eventually decided to start chit business.

He founded Jayapriya Chit Funds in 1985 as a partnership firm with a few friends, with a capital of Rs.3 lakhs and three employees. He carried out the business successfully and took over to the next level (in larger scale). Since its incorporation in 1992 (becomes registered chit fund- Jayapriya Chit Funds Private Limited) he provided his full support and hard work towards its growth.

The business involves much risk factor in advancing funds to members through funds collected from members but he managed the business fearlessly.

He represented Chit Funds Companies Association and he participated in several forums with Government, to negotiate stringent rules of Chit Funds Act 1982. Another feather in his cap is that he was nominated as Vice President of the All India Chit Fund Companies Association in 2008.
