Ecstatic to begin his new stint, Mr. Ranjit Singh, EVP and Head of Credit, CredAble stated, “During the pandemic, I have seen a sharp escalation in the financing needs for both big and small enterprises to survive. And, businesses grow by leveraging current assets to raise working capital debt, but this oxygen is denied to SMEs, as traditional financing prefers the comfort zone of large balance sheets or fixed asset covers. A credit paradigm that breaks this template by tracking cash flows has long been talked about but is taking shape only now. Today, the imaginative use of technology and data can realize this promise by delivering credit to SMEs. With its innovative solutions, CredAble is ensuring liquidity in the supply chain ecosystem across industries and I will be glad to leverage my experience to enhance the reach further.”
