About Wonga

A fresh approach to lending

Wonga is a ground-breaking online lender. It was founded in 2007 in London by two South Africans who saw a need in the market for a fast and convenient credit provider. After growing the company and three years of research and development, the founders felt it was time to spread their wings and take the company international.

They believed the South African consumer credit market was crying out for a new, innovative service and, besides, it was only natural for them to want to launch in their home country.
