LOLC Finance introduces ‘OYES’


LOLC Finance PLC with iPay, jointly launched ‘OYES,’ a simplified platform for salary advances. Plausibly a technology-driven solution, to own and to unlock earned salaries.

On the day of the launch, Conrad Dias, Chairman of LOLC Finance PLC, as the visionary behind the idea of OYES, steered a complete dialogue on the functionalities of the new platform. He said “Our approach is very simple, OYES is not another payday loan, but we are enabling the employees to essentially draw their earned salary. OYES is promoting financial wellness to the employee while providing an obvious value addition to the employer, to attract and to recruit more talent. We make ‘every day a payday’ to the employees on behalf of the employer.”
