Founded by Pallavi Shrivastava and Himanshu Chandra, Progcap has scaled to 300k retailers across 50 corporates and disbursed over INR 1500 cr of loans on its uniquely designed product for India’s multi-tiered supply chains. Working at the intersection of software and financial services, Progcap aims to be the first full-stack retailer-focused digital bank that enables capital flow across the supply chain to underserved retailers. With a promising vision, strong growth capabilities supported by an outstanding portfolio quality, the company is aiming to impact over 5 million enterprises by the end of 2023.

Speaking on the investment, Ashish Agrawal, Principal, Sequoia India said, “Progcap has built a unique product to cater to the working capital needs of small Indian retailers who serve much of India’s USD 800 billion retail markets. As supply chains in India get formalized with GST, the company will play an important role in serving the financial needs of such retailers. Since Sequoia Capital India’s Series A investment, Progcap has scaled the business with exceptional credit quality and high capital efficiency, the team is excited to strengthen the partnership with this financing.”

“We are thrilled to partner with the Progcap team as they help small and mid-size businesses get access to financing. We believe Progcap has an exciting path ahead as they continue to innovate in this underserved market,” Scott Shleifer, Partner, Tiger Global added.

Commenting on the fundraise, the founders said, “We are excited to have Sequoia Capital India double down on Progcap and thrilled to have Tiger Global join us in our journey. The continued faith that our customers, partners, and investors have put in us is a testament to our teams’ unrelenting efforts. We are committed to continuing our efforts in building India’s largest digital banking platform for last-mile retailers.”
