MONTREAL, QUEBEC – (NEWSFILE – March 16, 2020) – Peak Positioning Technologies Inc. (CSE: PKK) (“Peak” or the “Company”) today announced that recent activity on its Jinxiaoer loan brokerage platform has seen a noticeable increase in the last week with an influx of new users and loan requests.
Although most businesses in China have now resumed their operations following the COVID-19 outbreak, people are still doing their best to limit non-essential travel, group gatherings and face-to-face interactions. This has benefitted certain businesses, such as online food delivery services, that have seen an increased demand for their services. It would appear that the services provided through the Jinxiaoer platform also fall within this category.
Jinxiaoer allows loan brokerage sales reps to use the Jinxiaoer mobile app to submit loan requests on behalf of their clients and have the requests matched with lenders and funded without the need for physical interaction between the reps, the clients or any of the parties involved in the lending process. In the past week alone, over 500 new sales reps have registered on the platform, contributing to 32 million RMB (about CAD$6.4M) worth of loans facilitated by Jinxiaoer over that period.
Today’s news is yet another example of how Peak’s technology is continuing to increasingly impact various spheres of China’s commercial lending space. Earlier this month, Peak announced that the Jiangyin Municipal Government would use the Company’s Cubeler Lending Hub platform to help qualify the city’s SMEs most affected by the impact of COVID-19 for financial assistance in the form of low-interest loans. The government is currently running a public awareness campaign on its official website at http://www.jiangyin.gov.cn/ to keep the population informed on COVID-19 initiatives; and is working with the Company’s Asia Synergy Data Solutions (“ASDS”) subsidiary to create a new website specifically to promote the financial aid program, where SMEs will be able to submit their requests to see if they qualify for funding. ASDS, which manages the Cubeler Lending Hub, receives a service fee for each request submitted and processed under the program.
