By giving credit to borrowers who are underserved, Moneyboxx Finance Limited acts as a catalyst in the financial environment, transforming lives and promoting financial inclusion. It is BSE-listed NBFC catering to the unmet credit needs of microenterprises in Tier III and below places in India.

With financial inclusion at its core, it provides unsecured and secured business loans from INR 70,000 to 7,00,000 with tenure ranging from 12 to 60 months to meet the credit needs of microentrepreneurs in essential sectors (livestock, Kirana, retail traders, and micro-manufacturers).

In addition to directly offering loans for income generation to underserved borrowers, Moneyboxx also offers local talent job opportunities, contributing to the inclusive growth of the local economy. Additionally, as part of their impact programmes, they employ full-time veterinarians in branches to counsel livestock borrowers on cattle health, nutrition, and breed improvement to enhance milk yield. The firm is also undertaking sustainable farming efforts, which will significantly increase borrowers’ agricultural revenue.

These activities include the free distribution and upkeep of fruit-bearing plants to dairy/agri borrowers through CSR tie-ups and internal contributions. The agro-forestry initiative’s effects will be significant and long-lasting: The improvement of borrower income, the protection of the environment through soil conservation and improved air quality, and the sustainability of food sources.

SERVING THE UNDERSERVED

Rural India, which has a population of 65% and a GDP contribution of 47%, is vital to inclusive growth, however it received only 9% of the bank credit as of March 2021. With more than 225 lenders offering microfinance loans (average ticket size of less than INR 50,000) microfinance borrowers have adequate access to credit. Though such a small sum of loan is insufficient for the borrower to buy even 1 nice herd of cattle or another revenue producing asset, let alone change their income profile significantly.

While access to credit for the microfinance borrowers at the bottom of the pyramid has improved with outstanding credit of INR 2.87 trillion as of March 2022, there is a significant credit gap for the missing middle segment (loans between INR 50k and INR 10 Lakhs), which had outstanding credit of INR 1.02 trillion as of March 21. Mayur Modi and Deepak Aggarwal co-founded Moneyboxx Finance to address the unmet credit demands of the “missing middle” of borrowers in light of this vast credit gap and its significant potential for financial impact Moneyboxx is driving financial inclusion by addressing unmet credit needs of the missing middle segment (INR 1 – 10 Lakhs).

With cumulative disbursements of over INR 350 crores up to Nov’22, Moneyboxx has so far transformed lives of more than 22,000 borrowers of which 35% were first-time borrowers, while around 45% were women entrepreneurs.

Moneyboxx is committed to creating sustainable social impact by bringing transformational change in the income of its borrowers. By extending loans for income generation opportunities, they are enabling a multi-fold rise in the borrowers’ disposable income and creating an impact that goes beyond capital. A typical livestock borrower is able to double their income and livestock count within three years with the help of Moneyboxx business loans.

The Key Differentiating Factor – Tech-driven Scalable Business Model

Moneyboxx has successfully been able to service this MFI+segment through its unique ‘phygital’ model, which leverages technology for scalability and efficiency while ensuring strong customer connections through on-ground presence, resulting in better underwriting and collection efficiency. There are several different competitive advantages.

With proven business model in impact financing, the Moneyboxx has not only won over the trust of 22 lending partners, a few NBFCs have also started colending partnerships with them, and few banks are considering a large partnership model with the company. Given the soundness of its business model despite the epidemic, Moneyboxx is also regarded as a benchmark for NBFCs in its segment.

Moneyboxx uses a relationship officer-assisted sourcing methodology and uses a fully digital workflow from loan application to payout through collections. It has implemented robust cloud-based, integrated loan management platform for quick, cost-effective operation scaling.

01. Sourcing: An entirely digital collection of data: Using a direct-to-customer sourcing approach, Loan Relationship Officers of Moneyboxx generate direct customer leads and do not use any DSA or third-party loan sourcing models, putting emphasis on relationship-based business rather than product-based approaches and efficient credit underwriting. Field officers collect all key data points digitally using a mobile and advance the proposal for credit evaluation.

02. Robust credit evaluation & underwriting: While credit underwriting in the segment is challenging given lack of adequate business documents, Moneyboxx has proven and strong underwriting model which uses non-traditional and non-financial alternative data sources and proprietary sector-specific scorecards and advanced analytics. It has one of lowest credit costs in its segment with less than 1% GNPA despite pandemic.

03. Customer onboarding, disbursements & collection: Moneyboxx employs a fully digital strategy, including loan documentation that is e-signed, to make the onboarding process quick, simple, and effective.

which is hiring Vet doctors on a full-time basis in its branches to help its livestock borrowers in improving milk yield, improve cattle breeds through artificial insemination and take better care of cattle health.

Moneyboxx’s Take on Innovation

Innovation is an integral part of the DNA here. In order to better understand its consumers, the company uses technology for everything from data capture and credit scoring through approval, disbursement, collection, reporting, and analytics. This is known as a “phygital” business model. Although Moneyboxx uses a relationship officer-aided methodology for sourcing, the entire process, from onboarding to loan documentation to
disbursement and collections, is conducted entirely online.

Moneyboxx has taken a fully digital approach to ensure easy and transparent access to credit, from customer onboarding through loan documentation to disbursements and collections. It has been able to profit from cost-effective digitised procedures, analytics, and decision-making because of significant investments in IT infrastructure for cloud-based integrated loan management software. Moneyboxx is also known as a cuttingedge, technologically advanced financial organisation that promotes economic growth by providing transparent finance to neglected micro businesses.
