L-Pesa Microfinance is a fintech startup poised to take advantage of the fast- growing need for financial services in the developing world.
L-Pesa Microfinance is the fintech startup on the front line of the financial services movement in the developing world. A pioneer poised to take advantage of a mushrooming need for microfinance, the company has validated its operating model over the past 18 months and built sophisticated technology, automating most operation.
It’s only barrier to growth at this point is its lack of resources to meet the need for funding more user acquisition and loans. The loss ratio on loans runs below 10% while return on loans is approximately 25%.
Microfinance boasts a history—centuries-long and worldwide—of answering a fundamental demand. The concept of microfinance isn’t new. However, L-Pesa microfinance most certainly is. Traditional microfinance has limited reach, and solutions have been targeted towards poor farmers and small business owners— completely overlooking others in need that represents 42% of the world’s population.
L-Pesa has harnessed these market forces and built technology and a proprietary credit scoring model that allows it to quickly scale microlending in developing countries while keeping loss ratios below 10%. The solution is highly automated, allowing a small back office team to support high volume loan origination. All loans are serviced by L-Pesa.
