16 Nov '16 SmartPesa Wins DBS Hackathon
An overdue share on our great success at the DBS Hackathon event! The challenge was to integrate into DBSs new APIs. These are not yet public. As participants, we were to suggest suitable use-cases and levered the APIs to demonstrate MVP.
Our solution focused on lending, and specifically:
– signing up clients with biometrics
– identifying them by fingerprint
– querying for existing loans
– applying for new loan with biometric
– repaying loans with mPOS device
A great testament to the team, solid teamwork and great achievement in taking the prize!
