Improving the accuracy of credit scoring


Most microcredit and microfinance companies already have an established IT infrastructure that meets the urgent needs of the credit business. In that and number and credit scoring.

At the same time, the accuracy of credit scoring is one of the most important elements of the success of a company on the microfinance segment. When lending inevitably comes the following types of economic losses – the issuance of credit to a bad client, the refusal to issue a good one. The fewer such errors, the less losses and the greater the profit, respectively. The accuracy of the classification of clients in the broadest sense reflects such indicators as AUC and GINI.
