Creamfinance teamed up with Mintos to offer installment loans in Georgia

Creamfinance, the fastest-growing European Fintech, announced that starting from 18th of August a new product on the peer-to-peer marketplace Mintos was introduced – consumer loans issued in Georgia with repayments in several installments.
