Indifi Technologies, an enabler for SME funding in India, has partnered with Suvidhaa Infoserve, a service commerce platform, in a bid to assist retailers to get easy and seamless access to their working capital requirements.

These channel partners include general merchants, domestic remittance distributors, small kirana shops, mom-and-pop mobile recharge shops and tours and travel agents.

Small and micro retailers face a huge challenge in terms of meeting working capital requirement to scale up their businesses and service more clients.

Indifi Technologies will expand formal credit facility to these small enterprises. The loan size range from Rs. 50,000 to Rs. 7,00,000 with the average being Rs.1,50,000. The primary determinant of loan amount eligibility will be the channel partner’s transaction history with Suvidhaa.
