Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - November 3, 2023) - Tenet Fintech Group Inc. (CSE: PKK) (OTC Pink: PKKFF) ("Tenet" or the "Company"), an innovative analytics service provider and operator of the Cubeler® Business Hub, today provided an update on the credit activity facilitated by the platform's "Financing" pillar in Canada while it continues with the development of the remaining "Networking", "Advertising" and "Insights" pillars.
The Company reported that loans and credit in the form of working capital loans, merchant cash advances, term loans, and lines of credit totaling a little more than $980,000 were awarded on the platform through the end of October 2023. That amount was divided amongst small and medium-sized enterprises operating in the construction, manufacturing, transportation, retail, professional services, wholesale, and accommodation services industries. Professional services accounted for the largest share of credit granted on the platform at 43%, followed by wholesale trade at 31%, and transportation and warehousing services at 10%.
"We are very encouraged by these initial figures," commented Evrard Nkwemi, Director of Financial Institution Relationships of the Company's Cubeler subsidiary. "Our current lending partners are still just getting acclimated with the platform and we're obviously constantly adding new lenders and SME members to the mix, so this is definitely a good start. Our objective at Cubeler will always be to help as many SMEs as we can make the most of their operations. So, to see that we're playing a role in facilitating loans and credit for SMEs operating in a diversified group of industries and coming from across the country, from Newfoundland and Labrador to British Columbia, is extremely gratifying. I'm really looking forward to seeing what these numbers will look like when the platform is operating at full capacity with the upcoming three pillars in the spring of 2024."
