How Tala delivers more with less in the Philippines

The term “leapfrogging” has often been used to describe Tala’s markets. Ubiquitous usage of mobile money (instead of credit and debit cards), accessing the internet from smartphones (rather than desktops) and the popularity of ride hailing apps (instead of taxis) all demonstrate how the diffusion of technology allows emerging markets to side-step incremental advances in favor of transformational ones. Still, many of Tala’s customers face the daily reality of life dictated by a lack of disposable income. And if necessity is the mother of invention, then need is the mother of design. At Tala, our engineering and product teams must find creative, inclusive ways to bring financial services to people who need them the most. We must make our customers’ constraints our opportunity to deliver more with less.

As we work through the problems that affect our users, Tala’s solution set is defined by the very mobile phones our customers have access to. In the Philippines, for example, many customers use devices like the Cherry Mobile Astro 2 and the ZH&K Mobile Pioneer. These devices retail for ₱1,699 and ₱999 respectively (about $32 USD and $19 USD) and have helped those with lower income access essential services. However, their screens are only 480 x 800 pixels, which limits design options for our product, and they have as little as 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage, which presents challenges for our engineers. Camera image quality on these devices also comes into play when Tala customers submit photos of themselves to meet identification requirements.

Moreover, Tala’s customers in the Philippines are sensitive to the costs of downloading updates. Many use phones operating Android 6.0.1 or below. Tala engineers must therefore ensure the highest user experience on very limited operating systems. Customers are also always using Tala on the go: while commuting home via Jeepney (large buses in the Philippines) or tricycle, checking out at the supermarket or dropping their kids off at school. Through this lens, Tala must adapt to the rapid rhythms of our customers without diminishing our core value proposition of instant, affordable credit to those without any prior history of borrowing.

Tala’s connection to our customers is only as strong as the challenges we don’t address. External factors sit between Tala and our customers, such as networks and external service providers, and they can all be sources of instability. Much of the external infrastructure essential to Tala’s product experience is subject to the bandwidth constraints of local operators. In effect, getting our product to our customers can be like trying to drink a thick smoothie through a thin, leaky straw. Something Tala’s engineers and product teams must do remarkably well because, in order for our customers to access the financial services they need, there is no other option.

Many Tala customers in the Philippines use tricycles to commute or are drivers themselves.

Working beyond the frontier of finance takes creativity, patience and mission-driven inspiration to move the opposite direction of most technology companies. While others seek to take advantage of new capabilities like augmented reality, biometric identification and transactions via cryptocurrencies, we’re focused on helping customers use ID cards issued by their neighborhood housing cooperative. Inclusive design isn’t just a challenge, it’s an opportunity to serve everyone we can possibly reach. All 3 billion [and counting!] of them.

Quang Tran, Director of Product Impact & Insights

Following the results of an internally conducted impact study in Kenya, Tala launched a new in-house research division, Product Impact & Insights (PII). As the team continues to grow, Quang Tran, Director of PII and Tala’s former product team lead, explains where the idea came from, why it matters, and how PII is working to keep customers at the center of everything Tala does.

The importance of measuring (and defining) impact

At Tala, our passion isn’t just building a product, it’s about solving a problem for the globally underserved. In order to better understand the difference we make in our customer’s lives, and identify the areas where we need to grow, we conducted a study last year on Tala’s impact in Kenya — our longest-standing market. Now, as our team continues to grow, we want to share what we found, why it matters, and how it’s helping us design life changing products for the financially underserved.

The study was a joint effort between myself, then a product team lead, and Tala’s data analytics lead, Shannon Yates. At the start, we realized there were no metrics that captured what we wanted to learn about our impact, so we hypothesized and defined them ourselves. Since unlocking financial access, choice and control for billions of underserved people requires both short and long-term results, we chose to assess our impact in two categories: immediate and long-term impact.

Here’s a quick look at what we found:

  • Immediate impact is readily measurable. We validated that Tala has been key in helping people smooth their income and expenses to have more stability. Of customers surveyed, nearly 8/10 felt increased relief or happiness about their financial situation after taking a Tala loan, including even after they pay the loan back. Studies have shown that people under stress tend to make poorer financial decisions, so this is an important testament to our impact.
  • Many customers leverage Tala to grow financially. Although Tala loans start out small and grow afterwards, our study revealed that many Tala customers can use these loans to grow their income. Some customers start with a small side hustle, while others are already established micro-entrepreneurs. Either way, they take Tala credit to buy stock to sell at a profit, or to weather downturns in their business to maintain momentum. We would love to study these customers more longitudinally to understand how they succeed.
  • Almost 90% of all customers had significant unexpected financial expenses. We have to provide more flexibility for our customers. Many of our customers lead unpredictable lives and we see it come through in repayment patterns. For example, we learned that even salaried employees can experience instability due to their employer. As we closed the study, we were left with a desire to investigate the other challenges our customers faced and questions like, ‘How can we help the customer reach stability and plan for the future? How do we get to a place where people feel like they’re in control of their money?’

The team taking off

The biggest positive takeaways from the study — that Tala credit helps customers finance micro-businesses, weather unexpected emergencies, and decrease financial stress — allowed us to better understand our short and long-term value. Beyond that, we unearthed more questions and a desire to dig deeper. Luckily, we have an amazing, growing team to do just that.

In the past year, Tala created the Product Impact & Insights team to work hand-in-hand with the product team to ensure that we build great products that change our users’ lives. That means staying close to our customers so that we build the right thing, build that thing right, and understand the results to improve future iterations. As PII’s team of researchers 
continues to grow, we have three specific goals:

  • First, conduct strategic research on user problems to identify new opportunities for Tala. Here we do problem discovery to inform ideation. This is an important step that product teams often don’t have the luxury of doing but is critical to human-centered design. If you are solving a problem that doesn’t exist or doesn’t matter much to the user, then it’s very difficult to succeed.
  • Second, ensure Tala ships solutions that are effective and intuitive to use. Here, we work with product designers and product managers to ideate and test various concepts, aiming to weed out the bad ideas from good as quickly as possible, and then hone usability in designs.
  • And finally, ensure that every Tala team member has shared knowledge of solutions’ impact from the user’s perspective. This helps the team to truly learn with each iteration, getting smarter and improving the flywheel of product development each time.

In the coming years, Tala is excited to create a unique process to bring well-designed products to underserved users in frontier markets. And we want to do it at scale. To succeed, we will blend together the tools of ethnography and empathy (the “why”), with technology to measure what users do at scale (the “what”). It’s not one or the other, you must be fluent in both, and our team is up for the challenge.

Come join our global team at Tala.co/Careers!

Since we raised our first seed round in 2013, Tala has been on a mission: to radically expand financial inclusion by becoming the world’s biggest and most trusted financial services provider. This mission, and our mobile-first solution, has brought brilliant, experienced, and diverse minds through our doors — including a roster of top-notch investors and advisors and a team of passionate doers. In the past year alone, we’ve brought in VPs and senior management from big names like Apple, Uber, and Capital One along with upstarts like ZestFinance and Remitly. Together we’ve made Tala the fastest growing fintech startup in emerging markets, impacting people from Kenya to Mexico, from the Philippines to India, and beyond.

But Tala isn’t done building; in fact, we’re only just beginning.

Tala is at one of the most exciting and critical moments in our short history. We’re growing an average of 130% quarterly. Our team has quadrupled in size since the start of 2017 as we’ve expanded to seven offices globally. Along the way, we’ve scaled our company culture across borders and made diversity and equity a priority — with the result that more than half of our people managers today are women, and nearly two-thirds of our teammates are from the markets where we work.

Growing fast is not unusual, especially for startups. What makes Tala unusual is that our growth comes with higher-than-usual stakes. We are not only trying to build a scalable, profitable business; we are also trying to address a problem that affects almost 40% of the world’s population. To date, Tala has provided credit to 1.4 million customers globally — but that 1.4 million is only a small fraction of the 3 billion people who are considered financially underserved.

And right now, we need people who can lead, people who’ve been in our shoes before and who know how to help us accelerate this dynamic and challenging phase of growth.We need people who, above all, believe in our mission and want to make financial services work for more of the world’s people.

So if you are a COO, a VP of People, or a CFO with startup experience — if you love a challenge, lead by serving, are insatiably curious, and believe in people — let’s talk. If you dreamed of changing the world as a kid, and think you have the grit required to take on a system as big and as entrenched as global finance, then I want to hear from you. Come work for a company that is leveraging best-in-class technology and data to solve one of the world’s biggest and most urgent challenges. Help build a team that isn’t just barreling towards a big exit, but trying to solve a significant problem.

Our market opportunity is as massive and as ambitious as our mission. Recent studies show a $2.1 trillion unmet need for credit in emerging markets. We’ve raised $105 million from Revolution, IVP, DCVC, Lowercase, and Female Founders Fund who see this chance to not only impact individual lives through credit, but also unlock the potential of entire economies.

Come work for a company that is leveraging best-in-class technology and data to solve one of the world’s biggest and most urgent challenges.

We are at an incredible moment in human history — a time when technology affords us a limitless opportunity to do good. We are a company of people who believe in this moment and in our power to build tomorrow. And we know that, if we do our jobs well, we’ll create opportunities for more people around the world to build their tomorrows, too.

Born in Prague, Joanna grew up in Poland before relocating to Los Angeles in 2010. She joined our team last year to lead our engineering release team, and has brought with her a managerial and technical prowess, fierce compassion for our team and our customers, and a general excitement to grow and change our industry. Read about her journey below!

If I had to describe myself in one word, I’d choose adaptable. I’ve moved around a bit geographically (before moving to the US I lived in Poland, Czech Republic and Spain) and when you’re moving from one country to another you’re thrust into a completely new environment. I’d say I’m quite good at adapting 🙂 Case in point, I’ve worked in tech for about 10 years, although I have a degree in ethnolinguistics!

On joining Tala

Before joining the Tala team, I spent over 8 years with an ad tech company, also within engineering. I decided to join Tala because I love what this company stands for. I was contacted by a recruiter, and after hearing about the company, I went on a research quest and what I learned impressed me a lot. Then I came in for an interview and met the team and that sealed the deal. I‘m truly impressed with the quality of my team and the pursuit-of-excellence mentality that I witness here on a daily basis.

Every day, we use technology to build alternative credit products for our customers, which enables them to access financial services they may normally be denied. It’s a big deal!

As mentioned earlier, my degree is in ethnolinguistics. I wanted to be a translator & interpreter and still have a deep love for languages and cultures (which made Tala all the more appealing!). I wanted to specialize in software translation and localization and that’s why I applied for jobs in IT companies. I also volunteered as a localizer for Mozilla — a few years ago, if you used Mozilla products in Polish (or GNOME) there may have been a translation or two in there that I submitted. Fun fact: My name is on a Mozilla Monument in San Francisco!

My first position in IT/Tech was as a documentation & testing specialist and that second part of the job was so much fun that I decided to start pursuing it as a career — that’s how I ended up where I am today.

Here at Tala, I manage the Release organization, comprised of Quality Assurance & DevOps teams in both Nairobi and Santa Monica, with contractors all over the world! This team is integral to our business as we are the last point of contact before the product or any updates reach customers. I haven’t worked in the fintech industry before, so there are still a lot of things I am learning, but I love that this gives me — and anyone else who joins our team — an opportunity to change lives.

Every day, we use technology to build alternative credit products for our customers, which enables them to access financial services they may normally be denied. It’s a big deal! Our customers are people who often don’t have access to traditional financial services, including people with no formal banking history. I love seeing data that proves that they’re just as qualified for those services.

On leading a team + the challenges ahead

My team spans the globe. To manage them successfully, I’ve learned that trust, flexibility and communication are key.

A few of my managerial best practices;

  • Make sure everyone is included, and all information is documented, easily accessible, and not time-bound.
  • Empower people to make decisions, train them to take ownership and not be afraid.
  • Give them training and tools to make the best decision in whatever circumstances they’re in, and trust them to make the right one.
  • Be transparent, and never hide information. I try to share things as soon as I hear them, it also helps me avoid worrying about forgetting something!

I’ve always been an assertive person, and as a manager, I’ve learned the importance of advocating for my team members to receive supportand buy-in. Similar to many other women in techI, too, have been on the receiving end of less-than-desirable experiences [with sexism] throughout my career, but what keeps me going is my passion for what I do. I have a hard time imagining doing something else.

Although there are many conversations about this, the main challenge for women in tech organizations is still representation across the board, especially so for women of color. I’m glad that this is a recognized problem and that there are initiatives being enacted to work towards changing the industry.

I see Tala’s role in this as setting an example of the power of innovation through diverse teams. I’ve learned from past mentors that you can get a lot done when there’s no ego in your work and you’re not concerned about getting the credit — especially when you work on a team with mutual trust and respect.

I’m proud to have this on my team here, and that we — Tala — can continue in our deliberate efforts to build a diverse company and become an industry standard.

Tala’s culture of innovation thrives on having a team of people with global backgrounds, expertise and interests. One such team member is Florian Hartl, a data scientist and tennis enthusiast. Florian was born and raised in Germany, and worked in machine learning and data engineering roles in Munich and Silicon Valley before joining Tala in January 2018.

He credits a “lucky coincidence” for helping him find his passion for data science — a passion he shares with us below, and in his workshop on building and understanding python testing frameworks.

Why did you join #TeamTala?
About a year ago, I relocated from San Francisco to Los Angeles and worked remotely for Yelp. It didn’t take long for me to realize that I wanted to be part of a vibrant office again, working through challenging problems with people in the same room and not just on a laptop screen. Additionally, I wanted to work at a startup again, ideally one with a product with potential to change the world for better. To get an overview of LA’s startup landscape, I developed a spreadsheet of over 150+ companies, ranked by different criteria like location, product, or potential. Tala got ranked number one! I applied for a data scientist position and once I saw, during the interview process, how smart, humble, and mission-driven people here are, I knew that Tala was exactly what I was looking for.

I am a big proponent of the phrase ‘never stop learning.’ Tala is a fast-growing company with a very diverse set of people, motivated by a shared mission. That’s a challenging environment, which, for me, is ideal for learning and growing. As part of the team, I’d like to improve my statistics and advanced math knowledge, as well as design and build multiple high-impact predictive models from the ground up. Especially the latter — given that getting modeling experience can be difficult to come by in larger companies, due to stronger domain specialization and infrastructural challenges.

It’s also great to be part of a team where data science is core to the mission. Our ability to serve customers wouldn’t be feasible without data, which we currently use to make accurate and personalized predictions for loan repayment, or to identify fraud. Data enables our product, and it’s important to me to be in a role that uses data for good.

What’s the data science team and culture like at Tala?
We are a group of people with diverse backgrounds, ranging from astrophysics and oceanography to ones you’d rather expect like statistics or computer science. Some common practices we follow are part of the agile software development paradigm: sprints, daily standups, retrospectives. Because we’re still a small and nimble team, we are constantly adapting the processes in such a way that it works best for us as a team.

I really like how much we support each other. There’s never a feeling of superiority or someone’s ego in the way of making progress together as a team. One exception to this, at least in my books, are our office-wide ping pong tournaments! I’m looking forward to growing as a company by bringing more talented people onboard to help out with our mission.

You’ll be sharing a framework for testing Python. What are the goals of the workshop?
I’d say there are three goals:

  1. To communicate the importance of unit testing your code. While I understand that in the early days of a startup writing tests might not be the most effective use of time due to fast approaching deadlines and many changes in the strategic direction, once the company is a bit more mature, the guideline should be: “Production code? Unit tests!” Well-written tests enable efficient scaling beyond a certain point (like lines of code or engineers) and I also believe they lead to happier engineers because we generally don’t enjoy accidentally breaking things and seeing all tests passing is one of those rare moments of bliss.
  2. To interactively teach how to write good unit tests. The emphasis here is on “good.” Writing tests is easy but writing good tests is a bit of an art. That’s also why some code can have a test coverage of 100% but be riddled with bugs and very poorly tested. Trying to convey this crucial aspect is easier in an interactive workshop setting than through a presentation because it helps to go through hands-on exercises.
  3. To explain the applied tools and how they all can be combined to create an efficient, user-friendly testing framework for any Python project. Seeing what each tool’s job is and the step-by-step process of bundling them together makes it much easier to understand the final framework which otherwise can be intimidating due to the sheer amount of novelty.

How could employing unit testing change our practices?
Assuming you were tasked with slightly modifying one of our business-critical models, wouldn’t you feel more at ease if you knew that the whole codebase is well tested and that in case your changes have an unexpected effect you’d get notified by breaking tests? It is true that instead of automated unit tests, you could spend days of manual testing and monitoring, but that’s not scalable, especially as our models and services become more complex.

How could testing code in this way make someone a better 
data scientist?
The best data scientists I’ve gotten to know throughout my career are not only extremely strong in math and modeling but they are also skilled engineers. I think one reason for this is the appreciation for simplicity you develop once you have an understanding of the immense engineering efforts involved in deploying a model to production and maintaining it.

More importantly, data scientists who are also good engineers can see a project through from beginning to end, which is a very powerful skill to have. In that sense, I think that knowing how to properly test code should be part of a data scientist’s toolbox because it’s essential for being a good engineer.

When you go through the workshop, you will learn…

  • how to use the tools: pytest, mock, coverage, tox, and make
  • how to combine them to create a simple testing framework
  • how to write good unit tests

At the end, you will be able to set up a simple yet powerful testing framework for Python in less than five minutes for your personal projects. From then on, all you need to do is write good tests and run “make test” to execute them. While it is targeted at beginners in the realm of testing, I think that more seasoned testers will also find it helpful and maybe even be able to use it for their own teaching purposes.

Now, it’s your turn — try it! Check out Florian’s Python Testing Framework workshop here and let us know what you think in the comments!

Four years ago I quit my day job to try to build something that most people told me was impossible. I wanted to change financial systems by starting with people — to rethink the very foundations on which our financial systems are built, so that they could be better designed around the customer. I wanted to find a way to prove that the billions of overlooked, undervalued, underbanked individuals around the world deserved to be trusted with financial services that could advance their lives.

I called this company InVenture — a made-up word that captured what I wanted to do and why. I wanted financial services to be more inclusive of all people. I wanted to do this work in partnership with people. I also wanted this work to be an adventure — a journey that our company would take alongside our customers, to help them move from subsistence living into the financial mainstream.

But the solving of this problem has also been an adventure. Four years ago, I was spending months with women micro-entrepreneurs throughout Africa and India, recording their daily transactions and expenditures by hand to try to build their credit history. I couldn’t have imagined that today we’d be building these scores in an instant, from thousands of miles away and from the thousands of data points on their smartphones.

Today we’re a data science and mobile technology company with offices in Santa Monica, Nairobi, and Manila. In the past two years, we’ve moved beyond building just credit scores to become a company that will also take the first risk on our customers and lend to them directly. But today we’re also exploring what other critical services these financial identities might unlock, and we’re moving as fast as we can to take our mobile financial services platform into new markets where we know we can have an impact.

That’s why today we’re transitioning the company name InVenture and rebranding as Tala — which is already the name of our financial services app in Kenya and the Philippines. As our journey takes us into new countries all over the world, we want a singular name that is resonant in many cultures and languages, and we want our colleagues everywhere to work proudly for our singular vision of broadening financial opportunity.

We want our colleagues everywhere to work proudly for our singular vision of broadening financial opportunity.

Tala means many things in many languages, including rhythm in Sanskrit, star in Tagalog, and tree in Arabic — all symbolic of how we design and approach our product. Our new logo, with its shape evoking a drum and a star, is also a circle — capturing the sense of community and inclusivity that we strive to build both within our company and around the world. But the singular orange arrow reminds us of our commitment to each person, our desire to see them as one of a kind, and our goal of building customized products that work uniquely for them.

As we continue on this journey as Tala — with each other, with our customers, and with our incredible investors and partners — we’ll continue to stay true to the company values that have guided us from the beginning. We’ll be nimble and adaptive to change, like our customers. We’ll stay committed to excellence, bringing out the best in each other and in our products. We’ll be meritocratic, valuing people of all levels and backgrounds and experiences both in our office and in our markets. And we’ll continue to show up to work every day because we believe in providing all people everywhere with more choice and control over their financial lives.

Onward and upward!

“When I walk around in my Tala hoodie or T-shirt, people say ‘Hey, you work at Tala!’ and ask ‘can I get a loan?” Swekenyi joined Tala as our first Quality Assurance Engineer in March 2016 and enjoys how his role allows him to think through different roles, with the customer as priority. #MeetTala and read about Swekenyi’s journey below!

I am from…
Western Kenya, Kakamega County, Lugari District, in the village called Mbagara

If I could describe myself in one word, I would choose…
Detailed. Because I love to see things done in a certain way, that is not short of what is expected. If something is not satisfying to the client or myself, I don’t feel that I’ve given my best. A 101%

I wanted to join Tala because…
I saw Tala as a way to join a paradigm shift because something like this had not been done in Kenya.

My position at Tala is…
Quality Assurance Engineer, [I] help in facilitating communication between back-end engineers and android developers, and catch as many bugs as possible.

In my role, I try to become one person that will satisfy the business, make sure the developer delivers the right thing, and — most importantly — act as the customer. The customer perspective is most important because that’s where the impact is.

I always want to know about our product: ‘Do [customers] love it? Or is it a pain point? Is it another app on your phone that helps you access money, or does it bring you joy as an application you love to come back to?’

In my career journey, I started…
At a web hosting company as a web designer, and in charge of helpdesk. 1.5 years later, I moved into the financial industry and worked as a programmer, supporting and deploying the credit bureau system [being used by banks] across east Africa for the purpose of data sharing with the bureaus in the region. I worked at Cellulant as a QA Engineer, and came to Tala because I wanted to get into the mobile industry and move ahead in my career. It’s been nice! It’s been one year, and I feel like I started yesterday!

Tala is changing financial services in Kenya because…
Traditionally in the Kenyan market, the customer has been doing the chasing for financial access. That’s a pain point for most customers. Tala makes approval happen in a matter of seconds, and the customer doesn’t have to come to our office or do anything extra.

We are different from our competition because…
Our goal is not to compete for [customers].Our positioning allows us to stay focused on our goal which is providing convenient access to financial services while putting the customer first.

Three years from now I see Tala as…
An opinion leader, in terms of developing financial services models that are designed for emerging markets.

My favorite experience with a customer was…
Traveling from JKIA airport, and the lady who checked me into my flight said “When you come back, make sure I get a loan!” This tells me that even in the most unlikely places, people are looking for our services. Even with the amount we give, people believe we are saving their day.

I am involved in…
My church in youth mentorship as well as in Christian Business Professionals Fellowship for college and University students mentorship.

I can be found on holiday in…
The coastal towns of Kenya.

Tala is proud to have Swekenyi as a member of our awesome Kenya team!
