Fincap - About Us Key Focus Content
Strong focus on MSME/SME lending
We strive to build a strong SME financing platform based on sectoral understanding supplemented by a fully integrated technology and analytics platform. An untapped opportunity, we aim to finance businesses across various activities like manufacturing, trading, servicing etc.
Focus on Traditional & Alternate Data
We consider data analytics as a key enabler to drive business growth and simplify the lending process, focusing on serving our borrowers' unique needs. Our strategy is to rely on Traditional Data (Bureau, Banking and Financials) and Alternate Data (such as GST, Transaction data, Social Media etc.) to underwrite our customers.
Digital credit assessment with zero physical human touch for smaller loans and for higher ticket loans, we are developing technology to embrace video-based customer interaction. We are currently incorporating and adopting the new technology for the customer onboarding journey, and it includes Video KYC, Video Personal Discussion, Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Social Media Footprint etc.
We have developed a concrete digital customer onboarding journey for a faster TAT (Turn Around Time) and have thus fast-tracked the disbursement process.
