Digital Lending is a trending practice where consumers can seamlessly secure a loan online with minimum paperwork required. The process of submitting documents, authentications, and disbursement of the loan through channels available to end users/consumers, such as mobile or internet banking platforms. Digital Lending can offer a plethora of market opportunities to various traditional lenders (banks), NBFCs, and innovative start-ups.

Traditional banks are usually less reluctant to disburse loans to individuals who do not have a good credit score and individual small businesses that do not have proper collateral; this is a scenario in which digital lenders come to the rescue. The new-age digital lending players have showcased an ability to expand their customer base by capitalizing on the needs of the under-banked population and solving the challenges retail customers and MSMEs face in accessing formal credit.

Digital lenders can play a critical role in the post-COVID era due to their capabilities to facilitate seamless, remote onboarding and digital document verification. Companies must sharpen their product portfolio hinged on a robust digital framework.

The following are 5 Lending FinTech companies to watch out for in 2022:

Since 2012, iwoca has made funding available to over 50,000 businesses, from cafés to car dealers, salons to solicitors. iwoca’s partner integrations and the lending API means they can provide access to finance where and when small businesses need it.
