CGCL has active relationships over 25,000 businesses and families ending Q3 FY21 across several states in India ranging from retail outlets to small manufacturing units, traders to private schools and individuals. The Company continues focussing on Tier 3 & 4 cities. The well-established and in-depth knowledge of micro markets has helped CGCL to maintain good asset quality and keep the loan book granular. This was due to higher provisioning for the conservative approach adopted by the company to insulate from any perceivable future shocks related to bad debts.
Despite the prevailing tough market conditions, business responsiveness significantly improved month on month, the company focused on managing risk with a calibrated approach towards growth and maintained strong liquidity and capital adequacy. The Company achieved a growth of 12% in MSME and 16% housing loan portfolio during the 9MFY21. The collection efficiency has also improved month after month resulting over 85% customer paying monthly EMI regularly.
Commenting on the outcome, Mr. Rajesh Sharma, Managing Director, Capri Global Capital Ltd. explained, “The market is under consolidation and the pandemic has given us opportunity to accelerate our growth by looking for other strategic investment avenues. Additionally, it has led to review our cost structures and adopt effective cost control measures which will remain viable over the long run.
