CreditCare Tech Teams Up with Moneygram International to Expand Business Operations

Creditcare Technology, a multinational consumer finance company, announced that they have partnered with MoneyGram International, Inc., a key player in the evolution of digital P2P payments, in order to expand further into the emerging markets of the Philippines, Vietnam, and, other world regions with Moneygram.

CreditCare reportedly “provides formal, innovative financial products, including personal loans and remittances, to the unbanked population, with a fully digital experience or at CreditCare’s 35,000 brick-and-mortar locations.”

The spokesperson at CreditCare Technology stated:

“The partnership with MoneyGram is a significant milestone in our mission to bring inclusive financial services to users in emerging markets. We believe financial services should be easy, low-cost, and accessible to not just 10% of the population. The CreditCare and MoneyGram partnership provides greater access, security, and simplicity for people to remit funds and get access to lines of credit.”

Rolled out in January 2019, thousands of customers immediately “responded to obtain low-cost, affordable lines of credit.”

After two years of repeated rejections by financial regulators, Founder Julia G. Ko through hard work and persistence, “secured non-depository bank licenses valid for 50 years in the Philippines and Vietnam.” There are just six compelling competitors “to service 105 million people per country market due to strong financial regulation and oversight.”

With regulatory approval, Ko was able “to integrate with a network of infrastructure consisting of 20,000+ physical locations, operated by SoftBank subsidiaries, to service consumers.” This includes convenient physical locations “like 7-11 stores, SM Mall, Robison’s Groceries, and BDO Banks.” CreditCare is further “expanding to an additional 12,000 locations with Moneygram International, and now, into Nigeria utilizing Moneygram’s backend infrastructure and 9 partner banks.”

Founder, Julia G. Ko was driven “to build the fintech business from scratch with no known connections in the emerging markets to improve the lives of consumers.”

Julia G. Ko, Founder of CreditCare Technology, said:

“The digital revolution has accelerated financial access for EMs, and decreased the high cost of customer acquisitions with increased efficiency in underwriting. This presents compelling investment opportunities and cross selling of products within fast-growing economies. We are excited to make digital financial products available to a broader range of populations. Increased financial access accelerates GDP up to an impressive 14% in EMs. By helping drive economic development, we improve the lives of women and by proxy, their families.”

As noted in the update, Creditcare Technology “expands access for 450+ million and gives digital financial identities in vital emerging economies.” They are trying “to solve the problem of financial exclusion by digitizing valuable analog customer data and creating a 360-degree profile of their customers.”

CreditCare is “a non-depository bank in emerging markets.” They act as “a direct lender and there is no intermediary and the customer experience is 100% online.” Though the majority “chose the physical location for the disbursement and repayments.”
