How does RupeeCircle work?
Backed by INR 55 million seed fund from Mahindra Finance, Oracle’s Cloud Accelerator Program & other marquee investors, RupeeCircle aims to drive financial inclusion to millions of unbanked & under-banked creditworthy individuals in India.
Starting off in 2017, RupeeCircle’s proprietary credit scoring model leverages data science, machine learning & cloud infrastructure to accurately underwrite first time borrowers and new to credit customers in the absence of traditional credit repayment data.
With increasing internet penetration, digital footprints and real-time analytics, individuals can act as “Banks or Financial Institutions” themselves and thereby extend financial services to the last mile.
With less than 3% population in India, investing into equity markets, Peer-to-Peer (P2P) investments provide a hassle free, less volatile and easy to understand option for generating returns as high as 24% annually.
RupeeCircle’s proprietary risk score based on traditional and digital footprints combined with in-house verifications, tele-calling and collections team ensures fraud and risks are mitigated.
Since 2017, RupeeCircle has grown from 5 to 50+ employees with INR 20 million worth of loan disbursed to under-banked individuals.
RupeeCircle’s online Peer-to-Peer lending marketplace leverages machine learning and data science to connect borrowers with lenders looking forward to excellent returns on their investments.
Majority of the customers use completely digital means to avail loans or invest money while more than 40% borrowers use Android/iOS mobile apps to avail services.
