Challenge

  • Being an “asset-light” business, they have no collateral or tangible security to offer formal lenders to raise working capital lines to meet their cash-flow gap of close to 3Crs
  • This significantly impacts their ability to grow and service large accounts

Key Goals

  • Ensure reliable and long-term supply of funding given their dependence on this capital to service their customers and vendor partners

  • Over a period of 3 months, CredAble enhanced their credit facilities to 7 Crs and eventually to 15 Crs today without any collateral or security to enable them to keep pace with their growth
