About Rubyx

Hello, we’re an international team with expertise in microfinance, data science, behavioural economics and human-centred design. We started Rubyx in 2019 to revolutionise the way informal entrepreneurs and small businesses fund their activities.

We’ve built a cloud-native, API-driven digital lending platform that enables service providers to rapidly launch innovative loan products that meet the needs and expectations of borrowers. Rubyx lowers the cost of entry to AI capabilities and makes credit scoring algorithms easy to understand so that the power of data benefits all.

Pioneering new lending ecosystem models, we support different types of partnerships:

  • We enable non-lenders such as digital platforms to easily embed lending features into their services to deliver more value to their customers.
  • We work with banks and microfinance institutions to help them accelerate their digital transformation and reach new markets.

Currently, we operate in the following countries: Cambodia, Cameroon, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Tunisia, Jordan, Georgia, India and Madagascar.

We’re passionate about the many opportunities to rethink microfinance together, but we’re not just painting pretty pictures; we draw our inspiration from many years of experience in microfinance and spending days and days in the field to observe the ways informal entrepreneurs and small businesses work.
