About Turnkey Lender

Turnkey Lender is the first of its kind SaaS (Software as a Service) to put bank-grade financial technology on a commodity cloud. By lowering lending technology barriers and facilitating financial inclusion, Turnkey Lender is creating numerous opportunities for a broad range of lenders - from smaller lenders involved in point-of-sale operations to midsize lending institutions such as mortgage brokers, leasing companies, payday lenders, health care professionals, telecom service providers and others who can now compete with the big legacy financing institutions.

Turnkey Lender's proprietary SaaS solutions allow a small or midsize lender to fully automate the process and begin operating almost immediately, which is vital for rural entrepreneurs in financially underserved regions, charitable organizations involved in forward areas, organizations providing credit to refugees, emergency financing services, P2P lending platforms, etc.

Essentially, Turnkey Lender is here to help its customers leverage various newly-emerging lending models to offer seamless services to a broader clientele providing alternatives to traditional banking and mainstream financial institutions.
