Tell us a few words about the founders and how the idea came
Justus Edet is an ex-blogger, serial entrepreneur, and a creative web designer. He started IOUMoney after reading negative comments on Facebook about “getting loan online without collateral in Nigeria“. When people don’t really believe it works or in other words perceived it as a new scam online, Justus thought it would be nice to research, filter and launched a platform that house only trusted and reliable lenders for borrowers to choose from. And since the directory is review-based, loan providers are rated from experience rather than speculation on social media.
