Arohan Financial Services Ltd, the Kolkata-based microfinance company, will raise around ₹ 350 crore from its promoters and existing investors to strengthen its presence in east and north India, a top company official said. The micro financier is also looking to launch its initial public offering (IPO) in the next 12-15 months to help some of its investors sell their stakes.

“Some of our investors have been with us for more than a decade like Michael and Susan Dell Foundation and listing will allow for an easy way to exit. We are working towards a possible listing in the next 12 to 15 months, depending on regulatory approvals and market situation,” Manoj Kumar Nambiar, managing director of Arohan, said in an interview.
