A $30 million equity investment was made in the micro-mortgage housing finance company Aviom India Housing Finance in a Series D round that was headed by the international investment management company Nuveen.

Aviom, a company founded in 2016 by Kajal Ilmi, offers construction, improvement, sanitation, and renovation loans to low-income households in rural and semi-urban areas. Additionally, it provides loans to female borrowers without formal proof of income and rewards female agents for finding loans.

The operating revenue for Aviom increased 79.6% to Rs 157.82 crore in FY22 from Rs 87.85 crore in FY21. In FY22, the company turned a profit, posting Rs 12.2 crore in profit compared to Rs 1.93 crore in loss, according to the financial statement filed by the company with the RoC.
