Receiving the Certificate of Recognition is a significant milestone that heralds a new phase of growth for the company, as well as for India’s P2P lending sector.”

The company has meticulously designed its process to ensure regulatory compliance, customer convenience, transaction transparency, and repayment support to create a business model that the company intends to use to make itself the market leader in the nascent P2P lending sector in India. Currently the company is present in 32 cities across India, the NBFC-P2P plans to enter another 40 cities
in the near future; resulting into a presence of 72 Cities across India (these 72 cities cover more than 90% of lending business of India). The promoters of the company also head OHMY Loan Private Ltd, an RBI-registered NBFC that facilitates finance for MSMEs in the country.

The company uses a proprietary algorithm and compliance – friendly KYC process to ensure that both borrowers and lenders on their platform have all the required information to make their funding and borrowing decisions.

The company collaborates with CRIF High Mark and CIBIL and uses its cutting-edge algorithm to ascertain the actuarial risk involved in providing credit to a borrower on the platform. The platform also enables borrowers and investors to diversify their transactions, which enables efficient disbursal of credit and risk amongst multiple investors.
