Mintos is continuing its geographical expansion and they are happy to announce that they have just launched the first loan originator from Ukraine on the marketplace! Dinero is the fastest growing online lender in Ukraine and it specialises in short-term loans. The company now offers you the opportunity to invest in its short-term loans listed in EUR on Mintos with expected net annual returns of up to 9.5%.

Dinero was established in 2017 and as of June 30, 2018, it has issued more than 59 000 loans with a net loan portfolio of more than EUR 2 million. The main goal of Dinero is to provide customers with immediate assistance in the event of unforeseen financial situations. The way the company assesses the creditworthiness of its clients is by using various scoring models, depending on the clients’ sociodemographic parameters such as age, credit history and other factors.

“Dinero is very proud to join the Mintos marketplace. We see marketplace lending as one of the global financial market trends, and Dinero is the first Ukrainian microfinance company to join a European lending marketplace,” said Ilya Vesely, CEO of Dinero.

Ukrainian-issued short-term loans from Dinero on Mintos range from around EUR 20 to EUR 360. The repayment period ranges from 7 to 30 days. You can expect a net annual return of up to 9.5%.

All Dinero’s loans are secured with a buyback guarantee, meaning any loans that are delinquent for more than 60 days will be repurchased. The company will maintain 10% of each loan placed on Mintos on its balance sheet, to maintain its skin in the game.

Investment structure

Taking into consideration legal requirements and investors’ interests, investors will be able to obtain exposure to Dinero loans by investing in loans issued by Mintos Finance SIA, Mintos Group company, to Mondoo SIA, a Dinero group company.

The repayment of each loan issued by Mintos Finance to Mondoo will be pegged to the repayment of a respective loan issued by Mondoo to Dinero and this loan will be pegged to repayment of the respective loan issued by Dinero to the borrower. Mintos Finance loans will be directly secured by a pledge on claims arising from Dinero loans issued to borrowers.

Mintos Finance will provide funding to Mondoo up to 90% of the principal of a respective loan Dinero has issued to its borrower. Accordingly, Dinero will keep 10% skin in the game. Dinero will repay the loan to Mondoo in lockstep with the repayment of the respective loan Dinero has issued to its borrower.

Should the borrower’s loan become delinquent for 60 days or more, Mondoo would ensure the repayment to Mintos Finance of the respective part of the loan received from Mintos Finance in full, together with accrued interest and Mondoo would ensure the buyback of the claims on this loan from investors.

“We are very pleased to welcome Dinero to the Mintos family. Our main goal at Mintos is to create a global marketplace for loans and geographical expansion is key to achieving this goal. We hope our investors enjoy this fantastic opportunity to diversify their investment portfolio and invest in Ukraine-issued short-term loans,” says Martins Sulte, CEO and Co-founder of Mintos.

Since its foundation in November 2017, in just eight months of operations, the company has disbursed a total of more than EUR 4 million in loans. Dinero currently employs more than 80 employees and as of June 30, 2018, the number of active customers exceeded 37 000.

ExpressCredit now offers investment opportunities in personal loans from Zambia on Mintos p2p lending marketplace

Mintos logo

Following a successful launch of ExpressCredit Botswana on Mintos, ExpressCredit now offers you investment opportunities from Zambia as well, through its local company YesCash Zambia Limited. Now you can invest in its Zambia-issued personal loans and enjoy returns of up to 14%.

ExpressCredit prides itself on its customer service and endeavours to give its clients a personal approach through its seven branches and two sales offices in Zambia, with more branches to be opened in 2018. It was incorporated on May 11, 2016, and obtained a non-deposit taking microfinance institution licence on December 23, 2016, from the regulatory governing body, the Bank of Zambia. Some of the equity investors in ExpressCredit and Mintos overlap.

Currently, ExpressCredit primarily offers short-term loans to its customers and matches the repayment dates of the loan to their salaries. It also offers instalment loans to employees of institutions from the Government of Zambia. The company has received a PERMIC code from the Office of the President under the Public Service Management division which allows the company to directly debit repayments from the borrower’s salary. For borrowers who are not employed by the Government, the repayments are directly debited from their bank account. As a result, ExpressCredit loans from Zambia have one of the lowest default rates on Mintos. Initially, the loan originator will place its short-term loans for investment on Mintos, which it issues to non-Government employees.

“ExpressCredit is pleased to expand our presence on the best marketplace for loans in the world. Our mission is to deliver accessible and affordable financial solutions through superior customer service and technological innovation to become one of the top microfinance organisations in Zambia. Our partnership with Mintos and continuous investments in technology, branch network and people will ensure that we follow our mission,” says Chilufya Mutale, CEO of ExpressCredit.

The average Zambia-issued short-term loan from ExpressCredit is around EUR 137 and you can expect a net annual return of up to 14%. Borrowers repay the loan in a single instalment after 30 days.

All loans from ExpressCredit on Mintos are secured with a buyback guarantee and will be bought back by the company if it becomes delinquent for more than 60 days. In addition, the company will maintain 15% of each loan placed on the marketplace on its balance sheet as its skin in the game.

As of February 2018, ExpressCredit had a total loan book size of more than EUR 3.6 million. After its business launch in the fourth quarter of 2016, the company reached its first positive EBITDA in November 2017, while recording its first net profits after tax in February 2018. The company achieved EUR 164 thousand of total profits in its first two months of operations in 2018. The company is continually looking at opportunities for innovation and increasing its ability to cater for all of its customer’s needs.
