Kredivo has scored nearly two million Indonesian consumers and helped e-commerce merchants increase their sales ‘significantly’. The platform is currently used by over 200 merchants, including Tokopedia, Shopee, Bukalapak and Lazada.

With the new funds, FinAccel will look to build new product lines, expand its geographic operational footprint and hire more talent to its team.

“More importantly, it is helmed by high integrity, experienced founders, who are motivated to solve massive pain points for Indonesian merchants and consumers, and in doing so drive the growth of the overall economy.”

Earlier in the month, Square Peg took part in the $80m funding round of international payments provider Airwallex. The company is a cross-border payments solution that supports international money transfers through payment collection, foreign exchange and local payment distribution.
