Aloi monitors the end-use of informal sector micro-business loans. The loans can only be spent within an ecosystem of accredited vendors (e.g. livestock loans only for livestock vendors).
We are powered by the hyperledger blockchain to increase security, transparency, and the possibility of smart contract integration in the future.
