LoanKuber has raised a Pre-Series A round of INR 13 Cr led by Lets Venture and participated by Inflection Point Ventures among other investors. LoanKuber will use the proceeds towards building and expanding the team, enhancing the existing tech stack and rapidly growing its loan book to Rs 75 crore in the next 12 months. LoanKuber aims to onboard 1000 MSME’s in the next 12 months as part of its expansion plan.
Mitesh Shah, Co-Founder, Inflection Point Ventures says, “LoanKuber is solving a big problem of lending in India. We know that banks are not designed to lend to a majority of the population who often fall in the trap of shady loan apps or sharks who levy high-interest rates and indulge in unethical practices. By digitizing the entire lending process, they have the ability to bring a large no. of loan seekers into a formal credit system and help them build a credit history. We believe MSME lending is still an untapped market and LoanKuber has built the right tech stack to roll out their services for this segment.”
