    -- About The DApact --

    We build a blockchain-enabled platform for the microfinance industry, aiming to create direct, unbiased and transparent bounds between lenders, local intermediaries and borrowers. The platform lets offshore lenders (crowdfunding platforms, development agencies, foundations) send stablecoin-denominated loans to microborrowers in low income countries, with no custodial middleman. Partnering local lenders (MFIs, NGOs, pawnshops) provide trustless underwriting services through our AI-assisted tools.

    Our MVP is 70% completed, with pilots running with partnering institutions (crowdlending platform, pawnshops, NGO) and 15 existing customers from previous pilot.

    The DApact will soon be processing the first ever microloans fully originated and disbursed through the blockchain. Big time.

     

    -- About the position --

    The position is based out of Cambodia, our test market for the coming 6 to 12 months. It is expected the team will relocate after the pilots.
