1. Tell us more about the business model of iCredit Romania
Hello! Before I start, I would like to say that this year the company celebrates its 10th birthday on the Romanian market.
Within these 10 years, iCredit ranks in the TOP 3 companies in the sector of fast lending, providing access to financial services to people that need financial help. The company has around 28% share of the “home lending” market, with over 1600 employees in over 100 offices. The business model is unique and it provides our current and future clients with individual approach, care, and flexibility with the payment schedule. All of this is possible because our clients have their personal credit consultant. Our portfolio has a rich variety of products that are adapted to the needs and possibilities of the client. The loans that we grant are small and are used to cover basic needs like: utility bills, home improvements and furnishing, household needs, payday loans, etc. Unlike the bank sector, our clients participate in the real economy. Our biggest stimulus is to keep expanding our business and to have satisfied clients.
