The SME financier is currently seeing a surge in demand for corporate loans. Higher costs and slower payments from customers mean that many companies need additional financing. According to Iwoca’s statements, the total number of financed customers rose by 50% in 2022 alone to a total of 15,429 companies. Additionally, in 2022 the lender increased the maximum amount of its flexi loan from EUR 200,000 to EUR 500,000.

Iwoca reaches net profitability

Iwoca reached net profitability in the fourth quarter of 2022. The fintech was founded in 2012, followed three years later by an expansion to the German market. According to its own information, Iwoca has since given companies access to loans with a total volume of EUR 4 billion. iwoca is now reaching nearly 3 million businesses across the UK and Germany through its embedded lending technology, which allows businesses to access loans directly through a range of platforms such as accountancy software apps and digital neo-banks.
