CreditAI Pte Ltd (CAI), is a Singapore & Bangalore based farmer digitisation and credit scoring company. CAI uses Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning technology to generate dynamic credit score of farmers. CAI understands the diverse, dynamic, multicultural and tradition of agriculture in INDIA and focuses mainly on creating ‘digital farmer profiles’ to help Financial Institutions, input suppliers, produce buyers, government & other stake holders to identify and transact with credible set of farmers, mainly – small and marginal land holders.
CAI offers credible data and platform for all stakeholders to work with farmers an institutional way. It is in-deed essential to create an ‘identity’ for farmers to empower them to transact digitally.
We focus on the following to achieve our mission:
- conduct our business with honesty, integrity, and ethics
- respect and value our farmers and employees who are the backbone of our success
- seek innovation constantly to serve our customers better
- provide an innovative, entrepreneurial environment that empowers great ideas
- maintain a responsible corporate governance that delivers value for our shareholders.
What we do
It is our aim to use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to enable, empower and equip small holder farmers with Digital Tools to ‘transact cash-less’. In the process of digital transformation – the farmer accesses low cost credit, avails discounted inputs in time, follows best practices, scientific methods & package of practices for cultivation in addition he / she earns reasonable profits & sustainable income.
Farmer adapting all these systematic methods, becomes a credible data point to work with. Financial Institutions, Input Manufacturers & Suppliers, Traders, Produce Buyers and Technology providers recognises the farmers as potential business partners to collaborate. This leads to a ‘Digitally Enabled & Evolved Agri Eco-system’.
Farmer Credit Score
We collect ground level / primary data of farmer, land, crop to create a farmer digital profile. Over the layer of the primary profile, CreditAI adds the secondary information layer that includes – KYC of the farmer, weather data, inputs purchase data from the input shops, income statements, agronomic survey data, loans and liabilities list, lifestyle-related demographics, credit history from the secondary source. This put together gives us ‘Farmer Credit Score’
This scoring model could help increase the scale and scope of lending to small holder farmers, and augment existing value chain finance programs. Digital lending expands the horizons of financial Inclusion and reach the unbanked and Underbanked segments of small holder farmers.
Offerings to FPOs
CAI offers digital solutions to community based organisations (CBOs) such as Farmer Producer Companies (FPCs), agriculture & dairy focused cooperatives and informal organisation structures to organise and digitise their day-to-day operations and business. CAI, through its FPO ERP Solution, helps FPCs manage their member base, avail digital loan facilities to farmer members, digitise their input sale business and aggregate the produce of members. CAI also helps aggregate demand of inputs and creates a predictive business scenario for the FPCs to manage their business portfolio efficiently.
We connect financial institutions to the portfolio of credible farmer’s base at the FPOs with a digital ‘Credit Score’.
CreditAI offers platform for Financial Institutions (FIs) to lend ‘Cashless’ using ‘Digital Wallet’ based lending to farmers through FPOs. FIs could use CreditAI dashboards to monitor loan usage, transaction of farmers at the input shops, track the purchase of inputs, and repayment cycles.
