Limited Data and Transparency
Consumer targeting, market intelligence and customer creditworthiness determination is ineffective and inexact, limiting targeted sales and precision cash flow projections.
Little Flexibility, Liquidity and Scale
Viable multi-country, multi-operator investments with requisite ticket sizes are lacking. Financial and social returns are imprecise, while opaque portfolio performance and ineffective risk pricing reduce viable receivables-backed financing opportunities.
Broken Credit Scoring Models
Markets lack clarity on characteristics of repayment behaviors and future payment predictability, creating missed sales opportunities and inaccurate portfolio risk assessment.
