A typical state lender who has about N20 million capital is targeting the working class Nigeria, targeting loan sizes of N30,000 to N150,000. Knowing they stand no chance of growing the business if they demand their borrowers come to an office, they invariably would need technology, such as a mobile or website, to reach their prospective customer base.
Knowing you need technology is one thing, being able to build and launch is another. This is usually the waterloo for most lenders. They fall prey to sweet and fast talking script kiddies, who know next to nothing about loans and their nuances. .

Once you’re all set up on the web, it’s time to let your customers discover your app. You can share your web app URL with customers right away; the app can be used from a desktop or mobile phone (mobile responsive).
Also, setting up a new web app with Lendsqr doesn’t mean you lose your existing customers. If you have an existing client list with emails and phone numbers, you can upload these contacts onto the Lendsqr platform and automatically send loan invites to your customers (Neat!)
What can your customers do with your web app?
Your web app acts almost like a digital bank and can do what most banking apps do. The core of their functionality is that your customers can apply for loans seamlessly with a fully automated loan process.
Your customers can also update the profiles, withdraw loans from their wallet, view their transactions and loan history and refer friends all on the web app.
Additionally , you’ll never be too far from your customers with the in-app chat function also available on the web app. Lendsqr has partnered with Freshworks to give you up to $10,000 credit on the customer support platform so you are only ever a click away from your customers.
