Who we are

FintruX Network is a well-funded ecosystem platform built on the blockchain to provide liquidity to under-served SME globally.  All loans are protected by proven credit-enhancements. We facilitate lending in a true peer-to-peer network to ease the cash-flow issues of SMEs that typically face challenges getting loan financing. While pursuing traditional financing, most SMEs face challenges such as significant collateral requirement, stringent terms, and impossible rates (if alternative financing is procured). With credit enhancements, advanced technology and an open ecosystem, FintruX Network makes it easy for small businesses to quickly secure affordable loans with no collateral requirement.
