By leveraging their trade finance expertise, partnerships with capital providers and their in-house technology platform, CredAble is able to provide comprehensive working capital financing solutions to leading corporates across Asia in areas of Payable and Receivables financing, Debt Capital Markets and SME Financing.
Mr Nirav Choksi, Co-founder & CEO, CredAble, said,“We are very excited to have Plutus on board as our partner as we embark on the next chapter of our growth story. Plutus have shown tremendous faith in our vision and the team at CredAble as we continue to build India’s largest working capital platform. This fund raise enables us to address the working capital needs of our customers exponentially and add value to our financial institutional partners.”
On securing funds in yet another round from Oaks Asset Management, Mr Ram Kewalramani, Co-founder & Managing Director stated, “Oaks has been a fantastic partner from day one since CredAble was no more than a business plan. They have unstintingly backed CredAble’s vision to create financial inclusion for all businesses in India and we are very fortunate to have their continued trust and partnership.”
The company said that funds raised in this round will be used to enhance CredAble’s platform to constantly innovate and penetrate deeper into the ecosystem,to provide working capital solutions which are tailor made for small businesses and to create innovative Debt Capital Market products for corporates and financial institutions.
Further explaining the plans to channelize these funds, Mr. Choksi added,''CredAble has ambitious plans to address the working capital requirements for the small business ecosystem and create true financial inclusion. More than 30 pc of the GDP is contributed by the small business ecosystem which is largely credit and growth starved. Being a tech-first company, CredAble will use these funds to continue to build technology to enable straight through processed working capital solutions and launch our SME Growth and Credit Platform which aims to create inclusive growth for small businesses by providing them with cash management, payment and credit tools that will enable small business owners to efficiently grow and manage their businesses.''
Commenting on the transaction, Arpit Khandelwal, ManagingPartner from Plutus Wealth Management LLP added “CredAble is leveraging technology to solve the massive gap in working capital financing, which makes it highly scalable and inclusive platform. It is focusing on various under-penetrated segments within working capital financing through a very simplistic yet holistic and win-win approach for its various partners including borrowers. It is indeed a delight for Plutus to be partnering with Nirav, Ram and their capable team at CredAble.”
