MineTech Works With the CARE Foundation to Bring Credit Scores to Kenya

Working with the CARE Foundation in Africa MineTech proposed a totally new approach to creating a credit score for the poorer people in Kenya who have no access to credit or banking because they have no way of generating a credit history. Together with our mobile partner in the region (MDI) MineTech is gathering large volumes of unstructured data from thousands of Kenyans, using one of our machine http://onhealthy.net/product-category/cholesterol/ learning programmes to express the data as a numeric, allowing us  to integrate attitude and behavioural data onto village loan association data to generate a credit scoring algorithm. The process has attracted a lot of interest in many circles and already has been shortlisted for an award on the best use of new technology in the sector.
