What We Do

CedisPay is a lending company that aims to provide financial services to individuals who have been historically underbanked and unserved by traditional banking systems. The company leverages existing payment rails in banking and telecommunications to offer loans, savings, and growth opportunities to its customers. The underwriting model used by CedisPay is based on everyday life data, which the company believes provides valuable insights into a customer's creditworthiness. CedisPay's ultimate objective is to become the worldwide standard for digital lending and mobile payments.

To determine creditworthiness, CedisPay uses a proprietary underwriting model that analyzes a customer's digital footprint and everyday life data. Everyday life data refers to the information collected from a person's daily life activities, which includes their income, bill payment behavior, savings habits, credit history, and financial literacy level, among others. Here's how CedisPay uses everyday life data to design loan products and assess creditworthiness:

  • First, CedisPay seeks to understand the everyday life of each customer and offers them a customized solution. This involves understanding spending habits, bill payment behavior, income sources, financial literacy, life events, savings habits, and credit history.
  • Then, CedisPay scores the customer using bills and loan payment history, savings habits, income sources and other information
  • Next, CedisPay provides a customized loan product that suits the cash flow patterns of its target market and designs loans that take into account alternative forms of collateral, among other factors. The loan details are designed into flexible loan terms, collateral-free loans, financial education, savings components, and automated repayments.
CedisPay primarily targets customers with mobile money and bank accounts who exhibit good credit habits, including consistent and stable income, regular use of mobile money or bank accounts for their daily activities, and smartphone usage with internet access. In addition to income, CedisPay asks customers about their everyday life, such as their consistency in paying bills, decision-making about financial life, savings, insurance, and standing in the community through payment of business permits, association dues, tax payment, and helping others.
