SmartCoin, Olyv, Fintech Company, Fintech Development, Fintech News, Credit Access, India Tier 2 City, Fintech News India, SmartCoin Financials, India’s digital lending company, has unveiled ‘Olyv’ as its new brand name under which all its products across credit and the newly launched credit health and digital gold savings will be offered to customers.

The move reflects the company’s full-stack range of financial offerings, which have evolved beyond quick personal loans to include digital gold savings, credit health management, and insurance products.

During its 7-year run as SmartCoin, it offered a differentiated digital lending platform, growing the user base to 20 million, serving 19,000+ pin codes in India, and scaling with a tech- and data-focused approach to simplifying credit for India.

The new Olyv identity puts the vision of serving the customers’ entire financial life cycle at the forefront with a foray into a range of diversified offerings. The platform is leveraging a robust AI and ML stack to bring highly personalised and contextual products that address crucial need gaps in the financial inclusion mission.

With Olyv, the start-up is working to unlock newer customer segments and strengthen engagement via products that touch upon diverse aspects of a financial journey while maintaining focus on deepening reach in Tier 2+ cities.

The move not only strengthens its quick credit offering with higher-ticket, enhanced products but also introduces Olyv Gold (Digital Gold Savings), Olyv Credit Health Check (Credit Score), and Olyv Protect (Insurance) for discerning customers.

Olyv identifies itself as a tech- and data-first company and their latest addition to the portfolio indicates a deeper commitment to leveraging tech to premiumise product and platform experiences and serve comprehensive financial needs.

Rohit Garg, Olyv’s Co-Founder and CEO said, “We started SmartCoin with a simple mission to democratise credit access for underbanked India. Over the years, we have honed the knowledge and expertise to serve India’s diverse and emerging financial needs, which we will be building on going forward. Olyv and the comprehensive suite of offerings we have launched with it take forward our audacious ambitions to serve Indians in the areas of credit, savings, credit health, insurance, and much more.”
