Wonga.com is a digital finance company based in London. We have rapidly become a household name and we are currently the Sunday Times Tech Track no. 1 company, topping a list of the fastest-growing UK technology companies.
We use our trailblazing platform to solve the short-term cash flow needs of consumers and small businesses in a new and flexible way. We were the first company to automate the entire lending process, using thousands of pieces of public data to make instant yet accurate decisions, and we have won numerous awards for our fresh approach.
Wonga is disrupting financial services by offering smart, customer-friendly access to money. We helped our first customer back in October 2007 and we have since provided more than five million loans via the web and smart phones – all with far more speed, convenience and transparency than offered by banks and other traditional lenders.
