The company’s premise is to offer money to see customers through till payday and it has said loans of between R100 and R2,000 for periods up to a month will be on offer for South African customers.

Wonga operates using automated risk assessment technology on its website, showing how much would have to paid back depending on how much is loaned and for how long for. Loans for new customers are smaller and only extend to a maximum of 30 days.

The company, named after an English slang word for money, has recently launched a business arm of its UK operations.
