Monoova and Jacaranda Finance partner to further enable financial inclusion

Sydney, 27 January 2021 - End-to-end payments provider Monoova today announced a partnership with market leading fintech lender Jacaranda Finance. The partnership results in faster payments processing times, further supporting financial inclusion by enabling Jacaranda Finance to deliver an improved loan experience to thousands of customers.

Established in 2013, Jacaranda Finance addressed a gap in the lending market, offering quick, online unsecured personal loans between $300 to $2,000 and secured personal loans between $2,001 and $10,000. Most approved applicants can now access the funds in their bank account within 60 seconds of accepting their digital contract. The funds can be used a variety of purposes—from debt consolidation to funding dental work and holidays.

According to CEO Daniel Wessels, working with Monoova has enabled Jacaranda Finance to rely less on manual payments processing, which is crucial for businesses required to operate 24/7.

“We pride ourselves on helping customers navigate stressful financial situations by providing fast access to finance. For many of our customers who can’t be serviced by traditional lenders and funding models, we provide a critical service,” Mr Wessels said.

“Integrating with Monoova’s Automated Payment Service (APS) has been game changing for our business and an integral component in allowing us to deliver market leading turnaround times and instant payments to customers.”

Monoova’s Automated Payment Service (APS) allows partners to automate how they receive, manage and pay funds across a large number of payment methods. Partners can access Monoova’s payments services in two ways, either via an API, which allows a higher level of customisation, or a portal, which brings together some of the most powerful features of the API for businesses that don’t need the same level of customisation.

Commenting on the new partnership, CEO of Monoova, Christian Westerlind Wigstrom said, “We are inspired by Jacaranda Finance’s mission of financial inclusion and are delighted to bring this to life through our services. By enabling fast access to funds, we are supporting Australians who need it most.

“At Monoova, we are continually investing in our capabilities to ensure our partners can spend more time on supporting customers’ needs and less time on payments administration.”

Jacaranda Finance is the latest organisation to join Monoova’s growing client portfolio, which includes some of the country’s most innovative and high-growth businesses such as ASX-Listed firm Splitit, DiviPay and Supay.
