Mogo Group adds loans for investment from its 10th country on Mintos – Belarus!

Mogo Group, one of the largest used-car financing companies in Europe, has expanded its presence on Mintos once again by adding car loans from Belarus. With this development, Mogo Group now offers investment opportunities from 10 different countries on the marketplace.

Mogo Group was founded in 2012 in Latvia and joined the Mintos marketplace in 2015, originally offering loans for investment from Latvia. Since then, Mogo Group’s presence on the marketplace has grown substantially and now places loans on the marketplace from Bulgaria, Estonia, Georgia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Moldova, Armenia and now Belarus. 

Mogo Belarus: Strong, profitable and Sustainable 

For its operations in Belarus, Mogo Belarus was founded in 2018. Since its inception, the company has issued EUR 7.8 million worth of loans, as of June 30, 2019, and has a net loan portfolio of EUR 7.0 million, as of the same date. Mogo Belarus is already profitable on a monthly basis after forex. For the Group as a whole, Mogo has disbursed EUR 405 million worth of loans.

“In 2018 Mogo Belarus launched their activities. Since then the company showed exceptional but sustainable and profitable growth and Mogo Group’s strategy for successfully launching into new markets was proven once again. Because of that, it was decided to launch Mogo Belarus as a loan originator and share the company’s success with Mintos investors. I also hope that investors will notice the strong but sustainable growth of our loan portfolio, payment discipline of Mogo Belarus as well as the Mogo Finance group guarantee and Fitch B- (Stable outlook) rating. Taking all of that into account I am sure that it will be multi-beneficial cooperation for all the parties involved.” said Ivan Lagutin, the CEO of Mogo Belarus.
