Highlights of 2018

Looking back at 2018, liwwa has continued its rapid growth with a substantial increase in the number of loans and balance outstanding. Beyond financial performance we continued to support small and medium enterprises (“SMEs”), growing income, creating more jobs and supporting economic growth. We continue to make real progress around operations and underwriting technology, and risk management systems. We’ve focused on continuously refining our credit analytics tools and transforming the investor experience. We have delivered solid results the last year, and we have confidence that we will continue to deliver in the future.
