Speaking on this occasion, Dhruv Khaitan (DK), Founder & Chairman of NeoGrowth said, “It gives us immense pleasure to cross the milestone of Rs. 1,000 crore in AUM. This landmark is a reflection of the faith and confidence our customers and stakeholders have bestowed in the company. We’ve had a great journey having scaled up disbursements from Rs. 9 crore in FY 13 to Rs. 1,350 crore in FY 18. We have set a target of Rs. 3,300 crore for the next financial year.”
Businesses, according to NeoGrowth’s tech & touch model, are growing effectively, augmented by the in-house technology platform and smart analytics of the digital spends data. The Company’s proprietary technology platform offers unsecured loans to merchants who accept card or other digital payments from customers.
The credit lending platform’s tailor-made approach using digital payments helps merchants to plan their cash flows better and also boosts entrepreneurship and job creation. By driving these factors they are enforcing their mission on making an impact on society.
“We will continue with our expansion plans into these markets and keep innovating to come up with better solutions to help the SME segment in the best possible manner. In the next 5 years, we aim to cross Rs. 7,000 crore in AUM; in other words, build a billion-dollar balance sheet," Dhruv Khaitan added.
Flexible repayment is a hallmark of the NeoGrowth business, offering customer’s small daily auto-repayment facility from card-based sales. Striving to create a positive social impact on the financial lives of small and medium business merchants across India is NeoGrowth’s primary objective.
