*Capital India to Invest USD 25 million in Credenc For Education Finance*

 New Delhi, July 19, 2021: Capital India, a finance conglomerate has added another business to its portfolio through a strategic investment of USD 25 Million in mixed equity & debt in Credenc, an education lending fin-tech platform. This is in line with Capital India's vision to enable digital financial products and services to Indian customers. With this investment Credenc is looking to build a book of INR 3000 Cr by 2025. 

Credenc is a Delhi based fintech founded by Avinash Kumar and Mayank Batheja in 2017 and is a technology led education loans platform, working as the digital finance desk of 1000+ colleges across 17 cities in India.

Shri SK Narvar, promoter of Capital India, opines that “The annual spend on college fees in India is around US $50 billion or INR 3.5+ lakh crore, of which only 5% is financed by organised lenders. With Credenc, CIFL intends to change the segment perception and reduce underwriting risk basis Credenc’s future employability score, which will help this percentage go up to at least 15%, aiming to lend 3000 crores by 2025. Also, the founders will continue to run operations for Credenc as we would not want to disrupt the working of the organisation and believe they know the business best.”

They provide financial assistance based on student potential and future income instead of the existing financial capability of the family which is typically the primary factor considered by traditional education lenders. 

Avinash Kumar, Co-founder, Credenc said, “Our partnership with Capital India is very strategic, it will give us both balance sheet and cost of capital advantage which will help in disrupting the education lending segment by providing loans to students who were until now ignored, helping lakhs of Indian students achieve their potential ''
