India’s 21st century quality of life is not very good. In the past, it was possible to buy multiple houses with a single salary as an office worker.
However, millennials now know how difficult it is to rent an apartment in the metro.
Branch International hopes to assist you in solving this problem. They are a startup based in San Francisco and have established operations in Africa, Latin America, and Africa. They’re also launching to India this month.
They offer personal micro-loans starting at Rs 500 and going up to Rs 50,000, with terms between 4 and 52 weeks. You can get interest rates as low as 9 percent up to 24 percent.
All the processing takes place through their app, available here on Google Play. They were also the first to receive the mobile-only Non-Banking Financial Company license (NBFC) from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). They are not banks, but can still provide loans.
You only need to download the app and sign up with your Facebook account or phone number. After your profile has been verified, which the app promises will take less than 24 hours, users can apply for loans or receive money to their bank accounts in minutes.
Branch uses only data from the user’s mobile device to make a decision about creditworthiness and to offer a loan within minutes.
Repayments can also be made through the app using your bank account, debit cards, or UPI. Late payments don’t result in late fees but it does increase your credit score and ability to borrow more money in the future.

Charishma Chotalia is the Branch India General Manager. She says that our proprietary machine-learning credit models analyze nearly 3000 features to determine a Branch credit score for each customer. Customers must give their explicit consent to our models accessing this data after downloading the Branch App. These features include the phone type, app packages, number and contacts of each customer, as well as other information. This model helps us understand which loan offer is best for each customer. However, in mature markets, more than 80% are approved for loans.
“Our cutting-edge machine learning does the heavy lifting to determine a customer’s creditworthiness. However, we also use additional data sources such as government databases when available.” Chotalia also mentions that they have an internal team who handles manual loan servicing and review applications. This allows their algorithm to grow over time, according to Chotalia.
She also stresses that the security of all data submitted to the review is a priority. Chotalia states that the data is encrypted and secured and is never shared to third parties. To ensure that no account activity is stolen by hackers, they also monitor it closely.
Chotalia says, “With the increase in smartphone penetration and the tech-savvy of Indian customers, we believe there is tremendous opportunity for our product success in this market.”
