HCMC – Gojek Vietnam and Shinhan Finance have announced their strategic cooperation to make life easier for 200,000 driver partners of the former to access low-interest loans.
“The collaboration with Shinhan Finance is worthwhile to Gojek, because for the first time, our Gojek driver partners can gain access to a comprehensive low-interest loan facility, which they are in dire need of but was unavailable to them before,” said Nguyen Trung Kien, head of driver operations at Gojek Vietnam.
The support is particularly meaningful in these trying times, helping to ease the financial burden of Gojek’s driver-partners, especially when many have been impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic, he added.
The strategic cooperation between Gojek Vietnam and Shinhan Finance is also aimed at establishing a general framework and facilitating strategic and comprehensive cooperation between the two in matters of mutual interests, business opportunities and customer service goals.
The cooperation between Gojek Vietnam and Shinhan Finance is one of the activities to realize the policy of the Government and the State Bank of Vietnam on promoting non-cash payments and financial inclusion in Vietnam and developing consumer credit for low-income customer segments, contributing to limiting a black credit situation.
Oh Taejoon, general director of Shinhan Finance, said, “In the context of technology developing strongly and people wanting to access financial and banking services suitable to their needs and actual conditions, we are delighted to partner with Gojek Vietnam to offer more comprehensive and effective financial solutions for our customers. Our partnership with Gojek Vietnam is fully aligned with our mission of helping individuals and communities in Vietnam build better lives and a financially secure future, and we are excited by its growth prospects.”
In the long term, Shinhan Finance and Gojek Vietnam will continue to implement innovative ideas and expand the cooperation network in various products and services with the desire to effectively utilize the resources of both parties to bring comprehensive financial solutions to the Vietnamese people.
