CASHe enables young professionals to get loans within minutes, without paperwork and pain. You can now avail loans ranging from Rs. 5,000 to Rs. 200,000 for 15, 30, 90 & 180 days based on your need.

What is Social Loan Quotient (SLQ)?
SLQ is India’s first social behaviour-based credit rating system for salaried professionals and young salaried millennials.
As part of a growing digital community, we all create an imprint of our digital presence online in numerous ways. This digital footprint now defines how we exist & behave in the larger social world. This new reality formed the basis for our research scientists to develop an advanced credit ranking system using big data analytics, AI and predictive tools to calculate the Social Loan Quotient (SLQ) for our customers.
Conventional lending agencies like banks work on outdated systems that rely heavily on your past financial transactions. We are interested in your today and how that will impact your tomorrow.
SLQ’s revolutionary approach changes the way credit-risk is calculated. It is linked to a number of data points including mobile and social media footprint, education, monthly salary and career experience. SLQ is a dynamic score and as you interact with us more and spend time in the digital space your SLQ score evolves too.
SLQ is fast, unique and pathbreaking!
How do I know if I qualify for a loan with CASHe through SLQ?
CASHe has now made SLQ accessible for every applicant to know if he/she is eligible for a loan with CASHe. All you need to do is to complete your profile and submit the necessary documents on to the app. Within minutes, the AI-based SLQ engine will let you know your credit profile status. If your profile rating is ‘ Good’, you can go ahead and apply for a loan with CASHe using the ‘ Get CASHe’ tab. You will then also receive your SLQ Score. However, if your profile rating is Poor, you will not be able to apply for a loan, and may try again later after a few months when your credit profile improves. Additionally, the more you use CASHe responsibly, the better your SLQ score improves.
Once you are credit approved, your profile screen will show your SLQ score which looks like this.
SLQ is very different from traditional credit scoring systems which usually deliver a score based only onthe applicant’s historical financial behaviour. SLQ is independent of any bureau reports and generates its own scores based on the customer’s social behaviour data.
We welcome everyone to get their SLQ rating (without the need to apply for a loan), and become a part of this exciting new digital world.

The lenders reserve the right to recall, with due notice, any cash disbursed to Borrower for failure to disclose materially valuable information to determine your credit profile. If you’ve provided false or misleading information, the Lender will call for the amount to be repaid within 24 hours, following which you will be categorised as a defaulter, with the attendant penalties and appropriate steps may be taken by appropriate authorities.
When will I be considered as a defaulter?
Default is a failure to repay the full amount due including Interest within the time frame (including extended periods) from date of disbursement of loan amount. If you fail to repay within the stipulated time period allotted to you, you will be classified as a defaulter with CASHe and you will be unable to take a loan with CASHe
So, what if I default?
CASHe is an enterprise of trust. As a user of CASHe app, Lender lends you cash because it believes in your creditworthiness, and in your ability to return it. So, should you default despite the trust bestowed, the Lender will be forced to make your status as a defaulter public on the CASHe app and website, Lender’s website and on your social network and take necessary steps for recovery. Lender will also inform CIBIL and other credit rating agencies.
Can I repay my cash before the due date?
Is that even a question?? Absolutely! In fact, making payments before they are due raises your SLQ score. However, the interest payments are deducted at source at the time of disbursement and it will not be reduced/ reimbursed in such instances.
