Consumer lending in South Africa continued to record a strong performance, with gross lending recording higher current value growth compared to outstanding balance in 2019, as an increasing number of local consumers relied on credit for their daily expenses. This was driven by the performance by consumer credit, particularly the largest category of card lending, and to a lesser extent other personal lending, although the latter witnessed a strong increase in demand for overdrafts and micropayments in 2019 as consumers looked to reach the end of the month by supplementing their incomes through these facilities. To push performance to a higher level, lenders in South Africa are leveraging digital lending solutions. Among the solutions are:
Loanbook is a simple lending application available for various platforms like web, Windows and Linux.
