OPPORTUNITY
For many U.S. households, the ability to borrow is an essential tool. Access to credit can help individuals and families weather financial shocks, smooth income fluctuations, build a positive credit history, and facilitate wealth-building purchases-all of which are key to overall financial health.

The American middle class is suffering because they have very limited or no access to credit. Credit, when allocated responsibly and designed to fit the borrower's needs, is the most powerful means of improving one's standard of living. The problem is that banks cannot lend to almost 70% of their customer base because they cannot do so profitably.

Aliya can help banks and financial institutions overcome this significant barrier through big data analytics, technology, and non-traditional sources of risk capital.

We believe that a FICO score of 600 is not always a 600. Current credit scoring models are often outdated and inaccurate, falsely boxing in customers as non-prime when they can perform as near-prime/prime. We have developed a proprietary selection model and credit policy, which has been proven to expand financial institutions' lending population by 30% or more. The estimated annual market opportunity is approximately $500 billion of consumer prime and non-prime unsecured loans.
