Today, due to the principles of lending system, owners of small businesses without credit history in emerging markets just do not have any access to loans. Though they may use a number of digital services and these transaction histories could support their creditworthiness to lenders, the majority of digital service providers don’t share such data with any financial institutions or credit bureaus.
As a result, such entrepreneurs can’t get money to develop their businesses. But if small business owners have an opportunity to securely send transactions and credit data to a number of lenders and create a reliable credit history, they will also get access to trillions of dollars in loans.
Though a centralized system in theory can become one of the possible solutions, a number of intermediates who have already entered this sphere with a view to make loans more accessible, have proved their inefficiency as they need the trust of all parties to function. As a result, their potential scale and rate of growth are limited.
It has become obvious that a decentralized, standards-driven approach to this issue is much more likely to be suitable. It is able to minimize loan origination costs and significantly scale up lending volumes. Such a system can provide more volumes and sources of credit data and seriously facilitate cooperation between all market participants.
