DigniFi Welcomes Pagaya to Its Inclusive Financing Platform, Expanding Lending Services to Small Businesses

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 10, 2022--

DigniFi, an inclusive financing platform whose credit branded products are issued by WebBank, announced that Pagaya has joined the platform as a credit analysis partner. By supplementing the standard underwriting for DigniFi-branded loans with Pagaya’s unique credit analysis model, Pagaya supports DigniFi’s efforts to fund up to $80 billion worth of repairs that might otherwise be deferred and supports up to 80 million hard-working people with inadequate access to the financial resources they need to stay safe while driving.

In 2012, DigniFi set-out to redefine vehicle financing by breaking down the barriers everyday people encounter when seeking access to funds. Today, DigniFi is a leader in the world of transportation, helping small businesses across the country grow revenue and delight their consumers through visionary, inclusive financing solutions.

Pagaya uses a proprietary AI to help partners, like DigniFi, better serve their current and prospective customers. This allows DigniFi to provide expanded services to more drivers and to assist in the approval of higher-cost repairs.

“We believe more people are qualified borrowers than the traditional methods would suggest,” said Ben Blatt, Chief Business Officer at Pagaya. “By joining DigniFi’s innovative financing platform, we can help them connect with an underserved community of borrowers who need working cars to make a living and take care of their families.”

“Pagaya is an outstanding, like-minded partner who shares our commitment to supporting Main Street and hardworking people across the country,” said Neeraj Mehta CEO of DigniFi. “Together with Pagaya, we’re building a world where inclusive, accessible funding for the needs and aspirations of daily life, like getting back on the road in a safe, sound vehicle, is the norm.”
