How Tala Works
A New Kind of Credit Score
Our credit models allow us to evaluate an applicant's creditworthiness and capacity using the data on their mobile devices. This means we can evaluate and score even those customers who have no formal credit or banking history.
Anyone with a smartphone in our current countries can download the Tala app and apply for short-term credit. Loans are disbursed directly to customers' mobile wallets in less than a minute.
Full Financial Partnership
Smart data models allow customers to increase their limits and lower their interest rates over time. Within our platform, customers can view their credit status, track payments, get reminders, and ask for help. Making and receiving payments is quick and easy.
Services Built for People
All customers receive a personalized financial experience tailored to their needs and goals. Smart data models allow customers to increase their limits and lower their interest rates over time and have more choice and control.
We’re constantly inspired by our customers’ ability to be efficient and responsive. We try to embody the same work ethic in everything we do.
A meritocracy means you’re empowered to do your work autonomously. We don’t believe in red tape or "old boys clubs”, and it’s not who you know that counts, it’s what you know. The best ideas and work rise to the top and are recognized.
Committed to Excellence
We know it’s a challenge to take on traditional financial services, but that's what makes it fun! We hold ourselves to the highest standards, with our product, our customers, and our employees.
We believe everyone deserves financial access, choice and control.
We are data scientists, engineers, customer experience designers, marketers, and finance geeks all passionate about extending financial freedom to the billions of underserved people around the world.
