Microfinance is a form of financial service directed at small businesses that lack access to traditional banking and related services. The U.S. Small Business Administration defines microenterprises as businesses with less than five employees. Microfinance borrowers tend to be minorities, recent immigrants, women, or others with limited access to traditional credit. Financial innovations enabled by digital technology, or “fintech”, have started to play an important role in the provision of these microfinance institutions. Some of the top fintech softwares include:

The idea behind Loandisk was conceived by one of the founders who also happens to run a recruitment company in Australia. Having hundreds of employees meant that some employees required loans from the company and it was becoming increasing difficult to manage the loans.
So the idea was born of developing an internal software that will manage all the loans and repayments. After developing the software and using it for 1 year, it became evident that this was a great tool which made it easy to manage the staff loans.
One of the HR managers who was responsible for giving loans suggested that she can market this software to other lenders. The vast majority of lenders don’t have any software to manage borrowers and loans. It is all done through Excel or paperwork and manually sorting through entries in diaries and endless piles of paper stored in cabinets. So it was decided to market the software to lenders. Loandisk was formally launched worldwide in 2015.
