The alliance with BDO Solutions offers a significant opportunity to expand Cloud Lending’s suite of software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications to microfinance institutions (MFIs). The platform includes origination, underwriting, servicing, collections and reporting capabilities bringing an efficient solution to manage loan portfolios, increase transaction volume and rapidly bring new products to developing markets.
