Opening their Bengaluru office is part of U GRO Capital’s strategy to disburse loans between INR 10 lakhs and 5 crores to small businesses operating in eight identified sectors.

Founded by Mr. Shachindra Nath, a financial services veteran, U GRO Capital aims to create highly customized customer journeys by building sector specific products, assessment frameworks and distribution networks.

U GRO Capital has developed a truly next generation, big data driven lending platform which leverages digital capabilities across the value chain – customer acquisition, credit underwriting, and post-disbursal monitoring.

We hope to make a positive impact to these customers by providing aspiring entrepreneurs of the state with customized solutions. We wish to partner with them on their growth journey,” said Mr. Shachindra Nath, Executive Chairman & Managing Director, U GRO Capital.
