The competitive landscape is poised to grow significantly in the Latin American alternative lending market
In March 2023, Pismo, the fintech firm based in Brazil, introduced a lending tool in response to the growing credit demand among consumers. The lending tool is aimed at simplifying the process by disbursing loans digitally and at a faster speed compared to traditional banks.
Revolut, one of the leading global giants in the fintech sector, is also planning to introduce its lending service in Brazil by the end of 2023. The firm is currently seeking to get a license to become a digital lender and serve millions of underbanked and unbanked consumers in Brazil.
The foray of these fintech firms into the growing alternative lending segment will further drive the competitive landscape, supprting the growth of the overall market from the short to medium-term perspective.
Africa-based alternative lending providers are raising funding rounds to launch new products and accelerate growth
In Africa, small and medium-sized enterprises find it difficult to access credit through traditional channels. As a result, alternative lending providers are in high demand among SMEs when it comes to access to credit. To serve the growing demand, firms are raising venture capital and private equity funding in Africa.
In February 2023, Lulalend, the South Africa-based digital lender, announced that the firm had raised US$35 million in a Series B funding round, which was led by Lightrock. Over the past three years, the firm had embedded its credit solution into partners such as Vodacom, e-commerce giant Takealot, and fintech firm Yoco to disburse credit to SMEs. Businesses operating in construction, retail, and hospitality are also seeking credit from Lulalend.
In September 2022, Numida, another digital lender that serves SMEs in Uganda, announced that the firm had raised U$12.3 million in a funding round as part of its pre-Series A round, which was led by Serena Ventures. The round was a mix of debt and equity. With the capital infusion, Numida plans to double its client base to 40,000 over the next 18 months. Furthermore, the firm is also planning to enter more markets in Africa.
Going forward, the publisher expects more such SME-focused alternative lenders to raise funding rounds in Africa to reduce the annual credit gap in the SME sector across the region over the next five years.
In India, Tiger Global-backed savings startups Jar revealed that the firm is foraying into the digital lending segment to tap into the credit-starved market. To provide credit services, the firm had entered into strategic alliances with the likes of Liquiloans and other non-banking financial institutions.
Jar's entry into the segment comes at a time when some of the leading fintech players have announced to enter the consumer lending market in India. PhonePe, for instance, is looking to apply for an NBFC license to enter the segment and diversify its revenue stream. Jupiter, the neo-banking platform, also secured an NBFC license from the central bank to offer lending products.
In H2 2023, the publisher expects more Indian fintech firms to seek licenses from the Reserve Bank of India and introduce innovative lending products, catering to the credit demand among consumers.
