Who is our customer

IFMR Capital (2008) is an early growth non-banking financial company (NBFC) based in Chennia, India, whose mission is to provide efficient and reliable access to debt capital for financial institutions ("originators") that impact low-income households and small businesses. IFMR Capital develops deep expertise in a specific sector and then acts as a bridge between the originators (for example, Tier 2 and 3 microfinance institutions or rural-based NBFCs) on one side and institutional debt investors (for example, banks, insurance companies and pension funds) on the other side.

What is our funding objective?

FMO's existing and proposed facilities are IFMR's only long-term loans. This is particularly valuable now that the company is expanding into new assets with higher tenors, such as affordable housing.

Why do we fund this investment?

FMO invests in this project in order to support IFMR's ambitious efforts to increase access to finance for small NBFCs in India, through the increase in the balance sheet size. It is in line with FMO's strategy to serve micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises in India while supporting capital market products.
