Vyapar and FinBox collaborate to offer credit to MSMEs
By Leandra Monteiro
Vyapar, an accounting app that allows merchants, buyers, sellers, and retailers to raise invoices, has partnered with FinBox to offer credit to more than 9 lakh SMEs across India.
FinBox’s proprietary Embedded Finance Stack, has enabled Vyapar to offer business loans to the merchants in its ecosystem. Everything from application, underwriting to disbursement is handled in-app as part of this partnership, providing a frictionless experience to the borrowers.
“The objective with this partnership was to offer a seamless experience to our customers for availing business loans and other credit products. FinBox has helped kickstart this journey with a very mature product that can scale as our user base and credit portfolio grows in the future,” said Sumit Agarwal, CEO of Vyapar.
FinBox, CEO, Rajat Deshpande further added, “Vyapar’s ambition to digitize MSME finances and offer innovative credit products is commendable. The company is leveraging FinBox’s credit infrastructure to offer innovative credit products to businesses on its platform and helping MSMEs access financial services in a seamless and secure manner. The INR 25Tn credit gap for Indian MSMEs can only be bridged with digitization of credit and democratisation of access. I am confident that our partnership with Vyapar will see lakhs of businesses come into the formal credit ecosystem for the first time.”
FinBox Embedded Finance stack helps every company become a lending company by solving the most complex parts of the digital lending value chain and bringing them together on a low-code platform. By embedding credit onto their platforms, apps such as Vyapar are serving their MSME customers better by offering them credit products seamlessly inside their ecosystem and on optimal terms. And when it comes to the MSMEs themselves, they, for the first time, gain access to seamless formal credit at competitive rates and through a completely digital process with minimal or no paperwork.
