SmartCoin is a mobile-based lending platform that enables instant credit access for the vast underserved lower- and middle-income communities combining cutting-edge AI/ML technologies. We lend to a largely underserved market hitherto not served by banks, NBFCs, or microfinance institutions. Our product offering includes small-ticket personal loans to micro-merchants, self-employed and salaried individuals, who mainly borrow to fund their economic advancement. Use cases include working capital for micro-merchants, fuel and vehicle repair funding for delivery executives, vocational training for micro-entrepreneurs, and blue/grey collar workers' emergency medical needs. We are bridging the gap for accessible loans for their day-to-day needs. As reported in BCG 2017, 24Mn households in India who fall in the elite and affluent income categories have access to up to 80% of all formal loans, amounting to $202 Bn in credit. In contrast, the 124 Mn households with an annual income between INR 1.4 Lakh to 4.5 Lakh, have only received credit worth $24 Bn, which is less than 10 percent of the total formal market.
A vast majority belonging to the middle/lower segments of the society have continued to suffer from restricted access to formal credit pathways due to their volatile incomes, lack of traditional income sources/work proofs, and no/thin-file bureau. We at SmartCoin aspire to bridge this gap by optimizing our state-of-the-art tech platform and enabling credit access for emerging India by arranging "digital collateral" on the basis of user-generated phone data that can effectively reflect user behavior. Due to the pandemic-induced economic slowdown, the digitalization and use of technology have increased more than ever, and it's across sectors of the industry. With ever-increasing digitalization and cheap internet, India is on the right track for financial inclusion. Since we serve products specially made for Bharat, our mission is to deliver 100% digital easy sachet loans for the productivity and upliftment of credit-starved people from Tier 2 and 3 cities across the country. We wish to serve the next half a billion people who either don't have a CIBIL score or do not have formal access to bank accounts.
