This is a great achievement for us as we have given people the opportunity to access loans for their different needs such as business start-up, home renovation, car loans, rent payment, loan school, medical bills on the platform faster and without delay. While also creating an opportunity for people to borrow more as long as they continue to repay,” he said.
