Challenge

India is a growing credit economy. NBFCs and MFIs in India face issues with scalability, changing regulations and lot of internal operational paperwork.

This is massively complicated for employees of these banking institutions to manage.

Also, the institutions have huge credit work force that delivers the financial services via FoS model. The credit decisioning is highly unstructured with majorty of the application files being thin.
