Microfinance lender IIFL Samasta has partnered with Dvara Solutions, a tech-fin platform, to facilitate financing for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) with Canara Bank as the co-lending partner.
Co-lending enables banks and large NBFCs to do priority sector lending by collaborating with high-quality originator NBFCs like IIFL Samasta, which is also focused on the retail segment. The co-lending arrangement helps to share risk and rewards between the lenders in an organised manner.
“Dvara Solutions’ has created a comprehensive `liquidity platform’ that has helped us to seamlessly automate our co-lending partnership with Canara Bank. We were onboarded on the platform within a very short timeframe and are now confident to scale up our lending under this arrangement,” said Venkatesh N, Managing Director, IIFL Samasta.
Commenting on the liquidity platform launch, Vijay Chand, CEO of Dvara Solutions, said, “Co-lending arrangements between lenders are complex and varied because of the different core-banking and loan management solutions used by each lender. Our liquidity platform empowers originators to partner with multiple lenders of their choice without worrying about the complexities of different methodologies of loan schedules, sharing calculations and integration requirements. Originators using any Loan Management System (LMS) can integrate easily with this platform to manage their co-lending requirements, resulting in a win-win for customers, partners, and the Bank. We are proud to partner with IIFL Samasta and Canara Bank in this journey.”
