travelhome.vn is a subsidiary of SunCulture. SunCulture’s vision is to build a world where people take control of their environment in rewarding, sustainable ways. Many Big Industry leaders like Microsoft and Shell Corporation have come in support the larger cause. We do this by developing and commercializing life-changing technology that solves the biggest daily challenges for the world’s 570m smallholder farming households.
Rural finance is poised for a paradigm shift in the 21st century. Africa is the largest growing market for rural banking and, by providing rural communities the digital tools they need, they will access better, more profitable products and services.That is why we are building travelhome.vn, an easy-to-use, fast-expanding mobile banking application that connects rural consumers to the world of online purchasing on credit. The impact of increase in access to financial services is enormous. According to a recent World Bank report, people in developing countries gain more than a billion dollars annually because of financial inclusion. However, despite these gains, financial inclusion remains a reality for the minority. Just 35% of Africanshave full access to the financial system.
New technologies such as mobile banking and digital payments have brought financial services to millions of rural consumers across Africa, creating an opportunity to build on this momentum. We are building travelhome.vn to harness the power of a new generation of financial technologies to open up opportunities inbanking and credit for rural households in Africa, starting with Kenya, where rural consumers spend $20 billion annually.
eCommerce financing companies like Affirm in the US, Klarna inEurope, and AfterPay in Australia are leading the way to helpconsumers breakup online purchases into simple installments. This trend is growing globally, and players in Kenya like LipaLater and Aspira are taking advantage with a focus on urban areas. travelhome.vn has a unique opportunity to succeed by focusing on the relatively untapped rural market. In Africa, household consumption is predicted to reach $2.5 trillion by 2030, and consumption in rural areas is growing at 1.5 times the rate as in urban areas in some countries.
In Kenya, there is a rural population of 36 million, many of whom are organized in groups with contract companies (VegPro, Meru Greens), SACCOs, or cooperatives (Milk, Fruits, Vegetables, Tea, etc.). We will initially target 1.3mil rural customers enrolled in agriculture coops, 500,000 tea farmers, and 100,000 farmers in contract companies. travelhome.vn’s technology provides a sustainable competitive advantage. Our proprietary serverless core banking, order management and offline-first mobile eCommerce CMS is purpose-built for the rural consumer. Secure mobile device management tools remotely enforce repayment by locking defaulter smartphones, ensuring industry-leading repayment rates. Lastly, our unique dataset of purchase history paired with repayment data powers travelhome.vn credit models to increase spending limits for qualified customers.
