Dr. Sutapa Amornvivat, Chief Executive Officer, SCB Abacus Co., Ltd., said, “The restaurant business has its own unique, intricate nature. Daily operations are all about the flow. Decisions on costs need to be made quickly and efficiently. The inventory is ever-changing, and unexpected expenses are prone to happen. Several restaurants on Wongnai are popular among consumers and successful in sales. To respond to their needs and make the most of their business potential, SCB Abacus, as a pioneer of online digital lending platforms, has launched “Clickcash” (Mae Manee Sri Online) with Wongnai to enable businesses to access online loan service with personalized conditions in terms of credit limit and payment terms. Wongnai users can submit a loan application through the online platform and receive instant approval without further need to submit documentation. Also, customers will receive money as quickly as demanded. This ease of financing is intended to drive and strengthen Thai businesses in a long term.”
