HYDERABAD, India, June 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --
Happy with its performance, SucSEED Venture Partners backs its portfolio company RNVP Technology Private Limited second time. Known as i2iFunding, an RBI registered leading peer to peer lending platform in India, which verifies and matches borrowers looking for unsecured loans with interested lenders.

i2iFunding provides affordable unsecured loans to borrowers such as people with no credit history, small businessmen, self-employed personnel, grade 4 government employees, newly employed salaried personnel, and many others who are not serviced by banks or NBFCs. i2iFunding has disbursed loans of value more than Rs. 36 crs and has crossed monthly disbursal of Rs. 4 crs. i2iFunding has raised more than $1 million so far.
Vaibhav Kumar Pandey, co-founder of i2iFunding, said, "Majority of India is still credit starved as it lacks traditional data which banks use to provide loan. As a result, these borrowers resort to expensive informal credit or have to disclose their requirements to friend/family for financial help. They end up in debt trap or get embarrassed or both. i2iFunding have now developed strong understanding of such borrowers and have come up with technology-based customized solutions to cater to each borrower segment using alternate data. We think that we have now reached the inflection point and are in position to replicate our solution on much larger scale by increasing our outreach."
"We are grateful for the immense confidence which SucSEED has shown in the business. From January 2018, when SucSEED had previously invested, i2iFunding has grown more than 8x. This round of funding led by SucSEED will help us to leap forward and cement our position as the leader in peer to peer lending space. We expect to achieve 5x growth over the next year and also become profitable on the back of our strong unit economics. We are also in discussions with marquee investors in fintech space to raise Series-A funds," added Vaibhav.
Ajay Kalhan, an active investor with SucSEED and who has been representing SucSEED on board of i2iFunding, said, "Looking at the performance of i2iFunding over last 18 months, our angel investors felt confident to do follow-on investment round with them. In fact, this is our largest investment in any startup and we are excited to back i2iFunding with our full support."
Vikrant Varshney, Co-founder & Managing Partner of SucSEED, said, "With Investments in Paymatrix, Insense, Stockal and i2iFunding, we have penetration in payments, card analytics, wealth management and P2P lending space in the fintech sector. This gives us unique opportunity to help fester collaborations amongst all fintech startups to create a unique value proposition for the financial sector."
About RNVP Technology Private Limited
i2iFunding is India's leading NBFC-P2P and provides up to 10 lakhs of unsecured loans for both personal usage and business expansion purposes and these loans are funded by retail lenders registered on their platform. i2i's large focus segment is borrowers who have never taken loan previously from organized institutions, thereby supporting Indian Government's mission to increase financial inclusion.
Problem(s) being addressed:
- For Borrowers: Majority of India is credit starved as banks and NBFCs have limited focus and risk appetite to lend to customers such as people with no credit history, small businessmen, self-employed personnel, grade 4 government employees, newly employed salaried personnel, and many others. As a result, these borrowers resort to expensive informal credit or have to disclose their requirements to friend / family for financial help. They end up in debt trap or are embarrassed or both.
- For Lenders: Mutual funds and fixed deposits remain the frontline investments products for retail customers in India. The returns are typically in 7%-12% range. In addition, timely redemption remains a challenge in mutual funds. There is no product which provides 15% - 20% stable returns.
- i2iFunding provides unsecured loans up to Rs 10 Lakhs at affordable rates to these borrowers. i2i has built customized evaluation criteria for each customer segment by leveraging technology and hence, is able to provide loans at affordable interest rates.
- The interest rate on loans provide attractive returns to lenders. Hence, i2i has been instrumental in developing a new asset class for Investors (Lenders in this case).
Market Potential in P2P Lending space in India:
- As per PWC report, estimated potential of P2P market in Indian is around $4-5 billion over the next 5 years. Various industry pundits peg the full potential to be upwards of $100 billion.
