Grab Holdings Ltd.’s head of lending plans to leave after six years at the firm to join three-year-old Indonesian startup BukuWarung, people familiar with the matter said, a setback for the ride-hailing giant’s fintech ambitions. 

Ankur Mehrotra, managing director of Grab Financial Group, plans to join Jakarta-based BukuWarung as a senior executive, the people said, asking not to be named as the matter is private.
