With 15 Million Credit Scores Delivered, FinScore Continues to Serve More Underbanked Filipinos

FinScore, the Philippines’ leading alternative credit scoring provider, has achieved a significant milestone by delivering 15 million total credit scores. This achievement highlights the growing adoption of FinScore’s services among banks and lending companies, as they strive to expand credit access for underbanked individuals in the Philippines. 

Traditionally, financial institutions can only cater to individuals who have pre-existing banking relationships, leaving the underbanked population with limited or no access to credit. Christo Georgiev, the Country Manager and COO of FinScore, emphasized the company’s mission to enhance financial services in the country and support the empowerment of its citizens. “In developing countries like the Philippines, majority of the population remain underbanked and unbanked because of limited financial literacy and lack of information. With FinScore, banks and financial institutions can now provide loan opportunities to the previously underserved market.” 
FinScore covers 100% of mobile subscribers of the leading Philippine telcos. Its flagship Telco Credit Scoring draws its high predictive power from over 400 telecommunication variables – including voice usage, top-up patterns, call durations, SIM age, and location, and cutting-edge machine learning techniques like Gradient Boosting and Neural Networks. FinScore also has a growing portfolio of fraud prevention products – among these are FindSocial, a social presence calculator; eKYC Base Check, a KYC tool that cross-checks personal data against external databases; and CrediView, an aggregator that reports an applicant’s loan inquiries from over 40 financial partners. 

The use of alternative credit scoring holds a promising future as the country shifts to digital financing. Georgiev continues: “The current financial landscape empowers the underserved and underbanked. People who were once deemed “high-risk” can now be assessed fairly. They can apply for loans with minimal requirements and less hurdles to prove their creditworthiness.” 
As we move towards a financially-inclusive Philippines, banks, lending companies, and financial institutions continue to put their trust on FinScore. Its roster of clients includes JuanHand, LF Lending, Mocasa, Salmon, among many others.
