Fido was founded in 2015 with a mission to make essential financial services available to the unbanked. Realizing that the largest hurdle to financial inclusion is lack of access to credit, the founders set out to solve that problem first. Fido has built a one-of-a-kind credit risk platform that makes instant credit decisions without requiring the customer’s credit history.
Democratizing access to credit is a great contributor to financial inclusiveness, but we are not
stopping there. Fido is building additional innovative financial products aimed at further driving
financial inclusiveness and growth in the informal economy.
