We are happy to partner with IIFL Finance for this first-of-its kind initiative in MSME lending industry, where 100% of the loan application-to-disbursal happens digitally.”

In today’s omnichannel world of texts, chats, and tweets, merchants want to interact with businesses the same way they connect with their family and friends. Indians love to chat on WhatsApp – it’s easy, convenient, and secure end to end.
