Tunde Kehinde and Ercin Eksin, co-founders of logistics company, Africa Courier Express (ACE.ng), have a new venture aimed at providing financial services to Africans.
The company, which is named Lidya, has Oyebode Fajobi as the company’s country manager.
Lidya is a financial services platform for Africans worldwide. The web platform is expected to grant individuals and African businesses access to credit using credit scoring algorithms.
At the moment, the website is only open to individuals for pre-registration. Individuals using Lidya can build credit scores that unlock higher credit limits and affordable rates.
