New York and Bangalore – Leading global AI-powered credit decisioning platform provider Scienaptic AI announced today that Rang De, India’s leading peer-to-peer (P2P) lending platform, has chosen its AI-powered platform to underwrite applications for P2P loans.
Started in 2008, Rang De is India’s pioneering peer-to-peer (P2P) lending platform with a mission to provide access to low-cost and affordable credit. It leverages the power of empathy and technology and, via its platform, enables individuals to invest in first-time borrowers – farmers, entrepreneurs, and students from low-income households who are financially excluded. RangDe.org as a non-profit raised more than INR 80 crores from 15,000+ individuals and disbursed it to 65,000 low-income households until 2017. In 2019, the new platform, RangDe.in was launched, a Non-Banking Financial Company (NBFC P2P) to become the first RBI-regulated social peer-to-peer lending platform in India. Since September 2019, Rang De has raised more than INR 46 crores from 7250+ individuals and fulfilled more than 15,000 loans. The company will be leveraging Scienaptic’s analytical models, pre-built risk predictive variables, and credit decisioning engine to assess partners and borrowers and make sharper and instant decisions.
“Our platform is underpinned by technology, people, and human-centered design to make credit affordable for investees (borrowers) and to create a rich social investing experience for our social investors (lenders),” said Ram NK, Cofounder and Director of Rang De. “Scienaptic’s platform will automate and sharpen our credit decisioning allowing us to approve more loans faster, thereby helping us maximise impact, drive profitability and growth and accelerate last mile financial inclusion.”
