Lending Square Wins GHS 25000 at SRS Hackathon
Over the last weekend, Secure Revenue Services hosted a hackathon at iSpace, dubbed the SRS Hackathon. The hackathon was organised in collaboration with iSpace and CashPhase Microfinance Limited. The 4-day event was aimed at finding innovative and workable solutions to problems in money lending, concentrating on attracting persons with brilliant ideas for: Credit Scoring for the unbanked, and persons with little or no financial history.
After 4 days of thinking, hacking and developing their various ideas, Lending Square won the grand prize of GHS25,000.00 on Monday. As earlier communicated, upon further discussions and agreements with Secure Revenue Services, winners may be awarded contracts of employment to further develop the solution. Lending Square, a startup that digitises the money-lending sector seemed to have been a good position to claim that prize as they already have a deep knowledge of the banking sector.
