Nel ICO & Token Sale

Mainstream banks do not extend financial services to clients who do not have a minimum income. Microfinance aims to offer financial services tailored to the poor population: micro-credit, micro-savings, domestic and international transfers, and micro-insurance. Many different types of microfinance institutions exist. A microfinance institution’s objective is thus to contribute to the development and fight poverty. However, some local initiatives without legal existence but very active on the microcredit market does exist. During the last three decades, microfinance has skyrocketed across the world. This growth was driven by the growing need in financial services under the financialization process.


It will be the first microfinance lending platform aimed at developing countries, based on the NEM blockchain technology.
