Project Description

Home Credit makes use of a variety of alternative data--including telco and transactional information--to predict their clients' repayment abilities. Many people struggle to get loans due to insufficient or non-existent credit histories. And, unfortunately, this population is often taken advantage of by untrustworthy lenders. Home Credit strives to broaden financial inclusion for the unbanked population by providing a positive and safe borrowing experience.
