We have built a sustainable, scalable, and tech-driven business model with robust underwriting practices to cater to the underserved INR 1-10 Lakhs business loan market in rural and semi-urban areas. Given the huge credit gap for micro-enterprises in the INR 1-10 Lakhs loan segment in Tier-III and below areas, we see strong growth opportunities and aim to transform lives of micro entrepreneurs through our various beyond-lending impact initiatives such as free vet advisory and agro-forestry for livestock and agricultural borrowers. Moneybox is committed to change the way impact investing is looked at and bring significant positive change in the lives of its borrowers.”
