IuteCredit, a loan originator that has been a part of the Mintos family since June 2017, has yet again expanded its presence, this time adding new investment opportunities in Moldova – car loans!
You might remember that back in May of last year, the IuteCredit Moldova added personal loans issued in the country. Today, however, the company has also launched car loans issued in Moldova for you to invest in.
The newly-added loans to Mintos are in addition to the suite of investment products already available on the marketplace from IuteCredit in Albania, Moldova, Kosovo, and Macedonia. Since launching on the marketplace, EUR 25 million has been invested in IuteCredit loans.
