What We're Building

We are building a consumer finance fintech business whose mission is to enable financial freedom through providing access to credit. Banks typically require credit scores, thereby precluding over 80% of the Indian population immediately. By combining new types of digital data with traditional forms, we can form an assessment of a user's credit worthiness even if they don't have a credit score. If a user scores highly according to this new model, then we can offer them credit.

We are looking to build simple, easy to use, transparent credit products that immediately deliver value to our users by granting them financial flexibility. While the user experience must be clear and seamless, the credit scoring and decisioning will be underpinned by sophisticated analysis.

Our 1st product is a credit line of up to Rs. 1 lakh for up to 1 year. Delivery will be via a mobile app and webpage. The core proposition is that it allows users credit anytime, anywhere.

This is just the start...
