Fintech Company CredoLab Set to Drive Financial Inclusion in South Africa

Credit scoring fintech company, CredoLab announced on Tuesday, 1 October 2019, that it has officially launched in Africa. Starting in South Africa, CredoLab is aiming to drive financial inclusion in emerging economies on the continent by credit scoring more people, especially those who are new to banking or credit.

Michel Massain, Sales Director for Europe and Africa at CredoLab, says, “South Africa is a country desperately in need of ways to help more people access financial products and participate in the economy. It is estimated that about 76% of the Sub-Saharan African population needs credit but cannot access it, as they are excluded from the traditional banking sector”.
