Digital Lending in India


Indian Business Ecosystem

Earlier, the success of business in India was dependent upon various factors including government licenses, bureaucracy, availability of finance and such others. Availing finance was a major concern for start-up as well as growing businesses due to the amount of paperwork involved.

Digitisation has changed the lending system in India. Business landscape has evolved over past few years and has become more competitive and diverse with technology upgradation & easy financing options. Government measures such as GST & Demonetization have led entrepreneurs and businesses to operate in a formal business environment which in turn helped in creating digital footprints for them. This has helped new age lenders in assessing the creditworthiness of Small & Medium Businesses.
