Outlook Business Desk

Ring (formerly known as Kissht), a consumer lending fintech company, has raised Rs 100 crore in venture debt from Trifecta Capital, a venture debt player. With this funding, Trifecta is extending its partnership with founders Krishnan Vishwanathan, Ranvir Singh, and the Ring team for a second time and with a larger cheque. The firm first backed Ring in early 2022 with a debt of Rs 50 crore. 

Ring will utilise the Trifecta debt facility for on-lending and growing its balance sheet loan book. The company has built a scaled, digital-first consumer lending business with a focus on financial inclusion, offering personal credit to salaried and self-employed customers across Tier 1, Tier II, and Tier III cities. 

Abhijit Joshi, Director, Venture Debt at Trifecta Capital, said, “Ring, led by a robust founding and management team, has demonstrated that a consumer lending business can be built at a meaningful scale, despite a highly dynamic regulatory environment and variances in the supply of capital.” 

Krishnan Vishwanathan, founder of Ring, said, “This infusion of venture debt from Trifecta Capital not only validates our success but also provides the financial flexibility needed to further our mission of promoting financial inclusion across India. Together, we are poised to redefine the future of finance and empower millions towards a brighter, more inclusive tomorrow."
