Aye Finance secures Rs 250 Cr debt funding from FMO

MSME lender Aye Finance has secured Rs 250 crore (around $30 million) in debt funding from Dutch entrepreneurial development bank FMO.

“Our association with FMO dates back to 2019 and through our collaborative efforts, we have been making affordable credit a reality for the ignored segment of micro-enterprises in India,” Krishan Gopal, CFO, Aye Finance, said.

“This latest funding from FMO will be instrumental in allowing us to rapidly scale our lending efforts and include the grassroots businesses, that form the backbone of the Indian economy, into the folds of organized lending,” Gopal added.
