The company has since undergone a 13-week programme involving intensive networking, mentoring and development. Social Lender was incubated by Bincom ICT Solutions
“Social Lender is currently licensed to Sterling Bank. We will be announcing an additional partner bank in Nigeria shortly. As we strive to grow quickly, we are very excited at the prospect of showing that our solution can work in a well-regulated market like South Africa”, the CEO stated.
