About Freo Company:
Freo’s parent company began its operations in India in late 2016 with the launch of the MoneyTap app. Its objective was to make credit flexible and convenient at an affordable price through a seamless category-creating product. Since the launch of the app, MoneyTap, in cooperation with established banks and non-banking financial institutions (NBFCs), has grown to become one of India’s biggest and most effective Fintech companies.
FREO also established its financial services in Vietnam to build a strong global presence. Neobanks attracts a great number of consumers because of the experience they provide; however, without an efficient credit engine, it becomes very hard to monetize the business.
FREO is a different type of Neobank because of its credit-based system, which means it has a strong and authentic monetization model that enables it to provide completely different financial products to its consumers in such a way that hasn’t been effectively done by any other Neobank or Fintech Company in India so far Freo has launched different financial products and services to easily manage your expenses and also enhance your credit limits.
