Two homegrown initiatives of FINTQnologies Corp.’s (FINTQ) were recognized at the recent Asset Triple A Digital Awards 2017, a preeminent annual awards excellence program that distinguishes the best in class for the digital and finance industries across the Asian region.

KasamaKA– a community and income builder program– and Lendr–its digital lending platform– were named as the Most Innovative Fintech Collaboration by The Asset Triple A Digital Awards 2017. 

The Asset particularly recognized how the two initiatives have worked hand-in-hand to pursue financial inclusion and cater to the underserved and unbanked communities in the Philippines. FINTQ, the financial technology arm of PLDT and Smart’s Voyager Innovations, is the sole entity awarded by the coveted award-giving body from the Philippines.

Receiving the award is FINTQ Managing Director and KasamaKA Founder and Lead Convenor Lito Villanueva.

“With the recognition of the digital platforms and programs we have created to attain Voyager and FINTQ’s big goal of including 30 million Filipinos by 2020 in the formal financial system, we are all the more inspired to develop more digital financial platforms to achieve our goal,” said Villanueva.
