Veritas Finance secures $8.5 million debt funding for small business lending



ImpactAlpha, April 10 – Chennai-based Veritas Finance serves more than 14,000 small business customers with loans as small as $75. It raised the debt capital from Belgium-based Incofin Investment Management and BlueOrchard. Last year, Veritas closed a $10 million equity investment from U.K. development finance agency CDC.
