The primary function of a cooperative credit society provides loan to millions of underbanked, who do not have a credit score nor credit history and in some cases, may not have an asset to pledge.

These underbanked become members of various cooperative credit society by either taking a loan or owning a share in those societies. One of the major credit society is the Primary Agricultural Credit Societies (PACS). There are more than 90,000 PACS all over India serving about 120 millions of underbanked individual with the necessary loan for their farm-land needs.

Did you know cooperative credit socieites in India disbursed loans worth about $24 billions in 2018?

Yes, that's right! and about 10% of every loan that got processed by these cooperative credit societies was wasted in operating cost alone.
That's true. These societies have various challenges in operating their business.
In 2019, their critical processes are all manual. Customer onboarding, accounting, and bookkeeping are recorded in pen and paper format which has huge risk. Some societies would have software or tools to record these data but have high risk when involving human to manually enter into those softwares.

When it's time to disburse loan to the customer, the customer has to physically visit the branch to collect a part of loan in cash given over the counter. That's appalling.
