Creditare expands through MoneyGram

Wednesday 7 September 2022 10:46 CET | News

US-based finance company CreditCare has partnered with MoneyGram to expand intro the emerging markets of the Philippines, Vietnam, and Nigeria.


Rolled out in January 2019, customers immediately responded to obtain low-cost, affordable lines of credit. After two years of repeated rejections by financial regulators, the company 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.

In a statement CreditCare’s officials stated that they believe financial services should be easy, low-cost, and accessible to not just 10% of the population. The partnership provides greater access, security, and simplicity for people to remit funds and get access to lines of credit.

With regulatory approval, the company 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 utilising Moneygram’s backend infrastructure and 9 partner banks.

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, as per CreditCare’s representatives. Increased financial access accelerates GDP up to 14% in EMs. By helping drive economic development, we improve the lives of women and by proxy, their families.
