While there has been huge disbursement under the Rs 20-lakh-crore package to Non-Banking Finance Companies (NBFCs) routed through banks, there are still many NBFCs— small and medium— still waiting for the benefit to reach them. NBFCs with good ratings have been able to enjoy the benefit, but small and medium ones are still struggling, according to
Prabhat Chaturvedi, CEO, NAFA. With banks still cherry-picking when it comes to lending to NBFCs, players like Netafim Agricultural Financing Agency Pvt. Ltd. (NAFA) turn to foreign investors to stay in business. The company has been able to raise USD 40 million from an Israeli company, revealed Chaturvedi.
