From a small  segment a few years ago, India has now about 338 lending startups, according to the India Fintech Report 2019 by global fintech insights platform Medici and Zone StartupsPiyush Khaitan (PK), founder and MD, NeoGrowth Credit Pvt. Ltd, said, "The MSME lending landscape is evolving and is set to be disrupted by digital lenders, backed by continuous thrust by Government of India towards digitization through demonetization, Unified Payments Interface launch, India Stack and the introduction of GST." There is a shift from predominantly "feet on street" agent-based business model to a more digital approach, he said.
