The company also leverages its vast distribution network in rural and semi-urban areas to improve its clients' quality of living by offering other products such as solar lanterns, mobile handsets, consumer durables, etc.

Spandana Sphoorty co-founder and Managing Director Padmaja Reddy said, This is an amazing turn-around, and we are excited to have Kedaara Capital as our partner in our next phase of growth. This equity infusion from the Kedaara led consortium, along with new debt support from the banks, has helped us to clear all of our debt repayments, exit CDR, and position us to once again become one of the leading MFIs in India.
