What is Open Credit Enablement Network (OCEN)?

The government of India launched the Open Credit Enablement Network (OCEN) last year. It is an initiative in India aimed at democratizing credit access and fostering innovation in the financial ecosystem. It is a kind of a virtual credit marketplace which brings distributors, lenders, and borrowers together in one location. Basically OCEN is a set of protocols that enables seamless interaction between the lenders, loan service providers and borrowers by creating a standardized framework for credit underwriting, disbursement, and management for small-ticket financing with brief tenures by enabling distant lenders to conduct business in remote areas and permitting access to data from other sources.
