Hyderabad: Credit and payment reporting fintech platform, Recordent, has launched cRediCart, a one-stop solution for all financing needs of small and big businesses, in association with Banks and lending platforms – FT Cash and LC Bidding. cRediCart acts as an umbrella that houses a complete range of financing-related products in order to help businesses meet and sustain their growth objectives.
Recognizing how the COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly affected businesses, cRediCart aims at offering loans with quick disbursement and reasonable interest rates. Recordent has partnered with two distinct partners to provide two alternative financing solutions to assist businesses in meeting their growth objectives.
Financing option under Recordent’s cRediCart is Unsecured short-term loans in association with FT Cash. Under this, Recordent will market short-term loans/ business loans, especially for Distributors, Retailers, or E-Commerce Sellers who can repay through their POS machines with small equated daily installments. The loan amount here is up to INR 25 lacs at affordable interest rates, starting at 1.5% per month. Unsecured short-term loans also include a digital application and are collateral-free, and also enable easy collection via POS for enterprises.
The second financing solution offered under cRediCart is in association with India’s first-of-its-kind LC Discounting website, LC Bidding. Recordent will market LC Discounting feature that allows businesses that transact based on underlying LCs, to discount these LCs at the best rates, through price-finding across 25+ networks of Banks and NBFCs. Businesses can save up to 2% on discount rates with this deal. LC Bidding also provides document processing assistance. This type of financing does not create limits on the applicant and is one of the cheapest modes of financing.
Speaking on the financing solutions, cRediCart, Mr Winny Patro, CEO, and Co-Founder, Recordent, said, “This is the need of the hour. This effort shall extend a helping hand to many businesses that have suffered the consequences of the pandemic. Our focus is on providing seamless digital application of these financing options.

With minimal documentation, dedicated relationship managers/ support and quick disbursal of the loan amount, we believe cRediCart will help many businesses in getting back on their feet and grow immensely in the future years. This step is vital for enterprises to reinforce and thrive”
