Hero Fincorp partnered with Cashinvoice to provide digital SCF to MSMEs


Cashinvoice, India’s largest digital supply chain finance platform, is thrilled to announce a partnership with Hero Fincorp to make financing available to a pool of MSMEs in India. The aforementioned relationship would provide supply chain finance services to meet the rising needs of corporates in India, as well as alleviate liquidity difficulties for the MSME segment. With the forces aligned, Hero Fincorp’s strong capital base, along with Cashinvoice’s flexibility and technological acumen, would aid in the rapid penetration of supply chain finance programmes, providing liquidity to vendor ecosystems and credit to small enterprises in India.

The company provides tailored supply chain financing (SCF) solutions to customers and suppliers of mid and large corporations through its digital marketplace for invoice discounting. The platform interfaces with corporates to obtain access to verified invoices, dynamically prices invoice discounts based on risk assessment algorithms, and enables platform lenders to conduct loans against invoices digitally.

Arun Poojari, CEO and Co-founder Cashinvoice added, “We are constantly looking for ways to enhance the flow of credit within the business ecosystem to ensure an undisturbed supply chain among various stakeholders. Access to timely MSME funding, complex regulatory procedures, and insufficient financial knowledge are some of the daunting obstacles faced by MSMEs in India. Understanding these challenges and streamlining MSME business financing in India is important to achieve India’s goal of becoming a global economic power. We are thrilled to have Hero FinCorp, India’s leading NBFC, on board to act as financial aid on our journey to create solutions to solve the working capital gap in India. Through this association, we aim at facilitating INR 10,000 Crores of MSMEs purchases in FY24 .”

Cashinvoice offers a win-win proposition to all the constituents viz. large corporates, their suppliers and buyers. The model incentivizes buyers thereby unlocking capital which is trapped in the form of credit period within supply chains and can reduce financing costs by up to 4-6% per year. The company intends to bridge the 20-25 lakh crore credit gap in the MSME segment and has experienced 103% growth in Q4 FY23 compared to the same period last year.

Tarul Agarwal, Head Supply chain finance, Hero FinCorp commented, “Working cash crunch has been an age-old bottleneck for many of the corporates and MSMEs, innovative solutions like supply chain finance is providing tailor made solutions to resolve the daunting issue. We are glad to associate with Cashinvoice to bridge gaps in the ecosystem. This collaboration will benefit SMEs and MSMEs seeking business loans by making the overall process faster and more seamless.”

With the digital onboarding process, dealers will have a hassle-free onboarding, sanction and end-to-end digital financing experience. Through this partnership, Cashinvoice continues to provide financial inclusion in the economy, pushing beyond traditional boundaries and extending lending to tier 2 and tier 3 cities. We aim to disburse Rs. 1000 crores within the first year of our partnership, which will help to alleviate the MSME Cash crunch.
