Bharat Housing Network, a technology platform for co-lending in affordable housing, has raised 125 crores led by NABVENTURES Fund with participation by Varanium NexGen Fund, 9Unicorns, Riverwalk Holdings, SMK Ventures, DMI Sparkle Fund, LC Nueva and other investors.

Rajesh Ranjan, CEO of NABVENTURES Fund said, “Rapid urbanisation has led to an unprecedented increase in the demand for affordable housing. However, the shortage of affordable housing has affected millions around the world, particularly those with low and moderate incomes. Our investment in Bharat Housing Network builds on the stellar efforts of PM Awaas Yojana and other government initiatives to encourage low-cost housing and affordable loans for the same. Bharat Housing Network endeavours to bring down the cost of borrowing for home loan buyers in Bharat’s hinterlands. Bharat Housing Network is our seventh investment this year and we intend to invest in at least 9 start-ups by the year-end.”
