Nano Loans

Lending service provides a platform that allows users borrow small amounts at low interest rates and with ease of repayment.

As a lender, there are several variants available to you depending on your business model. We have several APIs you can consume to meet your business needs.

  • Provider Integration: This is basically for lenders that want to disburse and collect via other channels and also on their channel.
  • Channel Partner Integration: This is for channel owners that are not loan providers but want to enable people to get loans via their channels.
    However, there are two(2) classes of channel partners - channel owners with PCIDSS license and channel owners without PCIDSS license. For the second class of channel partners (without PCIDSS license), we are able to provide hosted fields to enable them collect customer card details.
  • Channel Provider Integration: This is for lenders that want to disburse and collect via their own channels.

Provider Integration

There are various ways or should we say types of loan provider integration.

  1. Loan Providers + Channel Providers (Lenders with a Channel)
  2. Loan Providers (Lenders without a Channel)

Please Note:

You need to have these endpoints defined on your application - Accept Offers, Get Offers, Get Loan Status, Payment Notification.

Step 1: Make a call to Get Offers. This is for the customer to be able to get a loan offer.
Step 2: Upon receipt of the offer request, make a call to Get Customer Information and Credit Score to confirm if the customer is eligible for a loan.
Step 3: Upon validation and confirmed eligibility, return an offer to the customer. Once the customer selects your offer, an Accept Offer request is triggered.
Step 4: As part of the accept offer process, perform name validation on the customer to validate the customer's account.
Step 5: Provided the customer is eligible for a loan and validation checks have been completed, credit the customer.
Step 6: If step 5 is successful, send sms to the customer informing them of the credit. Sometimes, due to flaky internet connectivity or some other factors in which the credit process fails, you can perform a requery to confirm the status of the transaction.
Step 7: To collect payments from customers, make a call to Debit Customer.
