【Background of the Partnership】
Today, 2 billion people in the world lack access to loans due to insufficient credit. Cambodia, with its growing GDP rate of 6.8% and its total population expected to increase until 2018, is one of the most flourishing countries among the ASEAN region. Within this economic environment, many yearn for better living standards by engaging in jobs as taxi and logistics drivers with their own cars. However, more than 80% of those people are unable to gain approval in loan assessments, leaving them with no choice but to give up their purchasing of cars. In this manner, there is a strong demand in this country to provide a better environment for job opportunities, to those who are willing to work hard as long as they had access to cars.
GMS, along with Shinhan Cambodia and other finance partners, will continue our efforts to extend the reach of our FinTech auto loans to those willing to work as commercial drivers. We are committed to realizing a better society in which hard-working individuals will be correctly evaluated, and can enjoy the life they deserve.
Please look forward to the future efforts of GMS Cambodia and Shinhan Cambodia.
