Wonga is a ground-breaking online lender founded in the UK and serving you from our Canadian headquarters based in Toronto. We launched our first website in October 2007 and rapidly became one of the world’s most innovative credit businesses, providing millions of loans to consumers. Our mission is to solve people’s short-term and urgent cash flow problems with an equally short term and responsible solution.
Since 2011 we have been proud to be transforming the Canadian credit market by offering small, short-term loans online with more speed, convenience, and flexibility than banks and other websites. We remove the complexity and inflexibility consumers face whenever they need to borrow some cash in a hurry.
Wonga is different from other online lenders because our sophisticated risk and decision technology mean the application and approval process takes literally minutes. We are the first company in the world to fully automate the lending process and we are able to make completely objective and responsible decisions around the clock.
There’s no paperwork, meetings with bank managers or hanging on the phone – our entire service is online and real-time. We are also uniquely flexible, allowing applicants to choose exactly how much cash they want to borrow and for how many days they need it. Our customers aren’t forced to borrow a fixed amount they might not need, or pay interest for any longer than necessary.
In an ideal world no-one would need to borrow money but, in reality, everybody has the occasional
Wonga moment – those times in life where an urgent expense or purchase pops up from nowhere and at a really bad time.
You need some cash to tide you over for a couple days or weeks and you need it fast. We believe it’s best to sort out short-term cash flow problems with a short-term solution.
So whether it’s the car that’s just conked out, an urgent bill has landed or you’ve just remembered your wedding anniversary with hours to spare… Don’t worry, Wonga it!’
Changing the future
The remake of digital money is the simplest way to accurately describe cryptocurrencies. Although the young digital currencies have managed to gain great popularity and gain the trust of a large number of users, in the future its popularity will only grow. Let’s just remember how the email replaced standard mail in the business world?
And so cryptocurrencies are trying to change money and its transfers. The cornerstone of cryptocurrency philosophy is in the combination of the digital cryptographic security made by peer to peer network and a limited amount of available resources, such as in silver and gold.
