For the past 40 years banks have made it difficult for their customers to get a small dollar installment loan due to the unprofitable nature of doing so. Credit card company business has flourished since the late 1970’s and bankers have been left on the sidelines.
The old (and current) way of making consumer loans is expensive and tedious and bank core processors have been slow to develop lending solutions that make these small dollar loans easy to book and profitable at the same time. Some banks allow consumers to apply online but many still require their customers to fill out an application in person.
Historically, bankers confirm the information on the application, pull a credit bureau report, and underwrite the loan. If the customer still wants to borrow, loan documents are produced and signed, repayment source and schedule is prepared, and the new loan is funded on the bank’s lending platform.
For loans of less than $1,000 most bankers cringe at the thought of doing all of this work for the amount of interest they will earn. Some banks turn these customers away. Furthermore, the cost to put the installment loan on their core processor’s lending platform eats up most of the interest the bank would receive.
Quilo takes all of the hassle out of making these loans and it allows the consumer to have instant access to credit based on their borrowing capacity. The new way of lending is digital (smart phone) and it provides easy access to loans based on the bank’s underwriting criteria. Digital banking has been around on the deposit side for several years. Now you can offer digital banking on the lending side as well.
