Customer name : Mr. Satyanarayana Korra

Location : Vijayawada

Mr. Satyanarayana Korra of Vijayawada first came to know about Shriram City’s (Shriram City) SME loans from an acquaintance of his.

So well in fact, that he is on his second loan from Shriram City.

As a manufacturer, he buys wood locally and supplies finished furniture like beds, dewans, and dining tables to various furniture showrooms. Mr. Korra has been in the furniture business for a decade, and he used to depend on local moneylenders and personal contacts for the financial needs of his business. The high cost involved meant that profits also went toward debt repayment. The extensive processing time and requirements, coupled with his limited knowledge prevented Mr. Korra from approaching banks for a loan.

Customer name : Mr. Venkata Durga Sadhu

Location : Vijayawada

Mr. Venkata Durga Sadhu runs Sai General Stores, a provision store in Vijayawada, with the help of his wife. He has been in this line of business for the last 15 years and his biggest challenge was finding the funds required to replenish and maintain stocks of both perishable and imperishable goods.

Approaching Shriram City Union Finance (Shriram City) for the financial needs of his business was the most natural course of action for Mr. Sadhu, as he had already availed of a personal loan and a two wheeler loan from Shriram City in the past. His existing home loan with a bank was also proving to be a stumbling block to getting loans from other banks and NBFCs. His experience at Shriram City was a welcome relief, as he was sanctioned a loan without having to provide any security.

The loan availed from Shriram City has helped Mr. Sadhu to improve and maintain his stock levels to meet customer demands. As a result, the sales of Sai General Stores have improved by 30 percent. If the needs of his business were to grow, Mr. Sadhu now has no doubts that Shriram City will be his lender of choice.
