The co-originated digital platform SBI-Paisalo (now known as the co-loan) found and served 40,079 borrowers in the first quarter of fiscal 2022, and as of March 31, 2021, the platform had served 38,362 borrowers.

Santanu Agarwal, Deputy CEO of Paisalo Digital Limited, said: “Paisalo sees a huge opportunity and is well positioned to capitalize on the huge Rs 8 lakh crore market of low cost loans for our 365 million underbanked people and underserved. This commitment will foster greater synergies and enable faster deployment of our co-lending product (formerly known as co-origination of loans). Our fully digital SBI-Paisalo loan co-organization program (now known as Co = Lending) is a big step forward combined with our recently signed National Trade Correspondent Agreement with the bank; Paisalo’s goal is to create the most competitive transparent banking solution for the Indian population at the bottom of the pyramid.
