Digital Lending Platform KreditBee Secures $75 Million in Series C

By William Girling

Founded in 2018, KreditBee enables “self-employed and salaried professionals” to take out loans of between ₹ 1,000 and ₹ 200k. Following an entirely online process, users can reportedly be imbursed their chosen sum within 15 minutes.

Based on straightforward, data-centric, KYC-based principles, the app features a three-step application process:

  1. Users sign up through either their Google or Facebook account
  2. KreditBee then provides a credit eligibility checker
  3. Assuming the user passes the previous step, they can then apply for their desired loan

KreditBee’s app is currently available on the Google Play store (4/5 rating) and has been downloaded over 20 million times. The company’s website also states that it will be coming to Apple’s App Store soon.
