“The fourth quarter of the last financial year has been extremely fulfilling for us with regards to the prevailing situation in the country. The number truly shows us that the business has started coming back to track and started adapting to the new normal. We take advantage of our deep know-how to identify future bankable companies as well as offering structured credit solutions for next-gen SME & mid-market companies,” said Ankur Bansal, Director of BlackSoil.

This pool accounted for nearly 80% of the disbursements over the last two years. BlackSoil has been sector agnostic and has funded companies in B2C & B2B e-commerce,
