A credit score is a determination of a person’s creditworthiness based on many factors relating to past loans, credit history, present debt, application for loans etc. A credit score ranges from 375-900 with 700 or more as an ideal score for seeking loans. Simply put, higher the credit score, the better a person’s credit worthiness is. A credit information report contains the credit score and brief details about credit history and outstanding loans. Lenders rely on such reports to disburse loans and decide on loan terms as it gives them better insight on a prospective borrower’s finances and financial habits.
Square Capital technology team is currently working on an integrated tech platform that will take the entire end to end cycle of mortgage lending to an online platform - from customer query, product policy check, credit decision making, eKYC check, online applications, all integrated with bank’s backend system and right through disbursal of loans. As India is progressing towards a digitally enabled economy, a major part of lending and loan disbursal process will move online. The home loan mortgages business in India is ripe for disruption by a true end to end technology services aggregator like Square Capital that can handle the entire customer journey from search & discovery to fulfillment and post transaction services.
