Home Credit reaches the 1M-customer mark in the Philippines

Home Credit, a Prague-based Fintech company that allows consumers to purchase smartphones and other goods on installment even without a credit card, celebrated a big milestone recently as it reached the one million customer mark, less than five months after reaching 600,000, and less than four years since serving their very first customer.

“In Home Credit’s four years so far in the country, we have observed that Filipinos tend to have a very positive attitude, and this is also true when it comes to buying goods. And often, they buy things not just for personal enjoyment, but also for enriching their lives and their loved ones,” explained Home Credit Philippines’ CEO Annica Witschard.

“So more than simply providing fast and affordable loans, we are able to help enrich the lives of our customers and the people that matter most to them. And we are glad to be able to do this for one million happy customers and counting,” she added.
