Beyond the Transaction: Every Transaction Has a Story

Morning Brew: Partnership Supports Small Business in Emerging Markets

The big news this week is the Sibos Conference in Dubai and Morning Brew has a report from the floor.  Special Correspondent Maya ElBaradie talks to DJ DiDonna, COO and co-founder of our new partner, Entrepreneurial Finance Lab.  EFL uses psychometric data to identify the least and most risky investments.  With EFL’s credit scoring technolgoy, billions of dollars in capital is flowing into developing countries and into the hands of worthy, but previously unbankable, entrepreneurs.

Take Pius Nganga and his wife, for example.  They are small business owners who received a loan after EFL worked with them and as a result, were able to triple their profits!
