UnaCash, an in-app and in-store financial solutions provider, was launched in 2021 in the Philippines as part of UnaFinancial, a Singapore-headquartered fintech group. UnaCash was started as a buy now, pay later service, while in July, 2023 it was upgraded to offer point-of-sale (POS) loans to customers. Now, the service also provides Instalment Loans amounting from ₱3,000 to ₱50,000 with the repayment period from 2 to 12 months. They are being offered to the existing customers with outstanding credit history.

UnaCash recognizes the increasing demand in the Philippine market for access to formal credit. We initially addressed this need with the introduction of POS loans in our platform in July 2023, and with the launch of Instalment Loans, UnaCash aims to cater to more individuals with strong credit profiles. This provides more opportunities to upgrade their lifestyle, and manage unexpected expenses effectively.

There is a growing interest in Instalment Loans in Southeast Asia, which is confirmed by our recent analysis - search requests for this type of loans grew by 50% in 2023 compared to 2020. We hope that our new product will help meet the increasing demand and give our customers more flexibility in choosing the most suitable option for their goals. The new product will also add variety to UnaFinancial’s offering, reflecting our strategy to diversify the business.
