Purpose Climate Lab (PCL) is thrilled to have partnered with Loans4SME on their brand and website, which was recently honored with a Webby nomination! Established in 1996 during the Web’s infancy, The Webbys is presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS)—a 2000+ member judging body, and is the leading international award honoring excellence on the internet.

This is the latest in a string of awards for Loans4SME, after the Joint Secretary of New and Renewable Energy Mr Tarun Kapoor announced they were also one of the four winning ideas demonstrating the most potential to drive more private investment and leverage public finance for India’s green growth targets.

About the collaboration

After meeting with Loans4SME CEO Simmi Sareen and recognizing the opportunity to further support this small firm making outsized impact, PCL campaigners worked with the Loans4SME team to determine the utility of the website, and the ambition of the brand. Jess Hines (Campaign Director), then led a process that united Purpose designers, branding experts and developers with the Loans4SME team to develop a simple and beautiful website.

The Loans4SME team is extremely proud to have been a Webby Award Nominee in the category of Financial Services/ Banking, for sites providing financial services and/or information.
