Leading MENA Open Banking company Tarabut has announced a collaboration with Bahrain-based digital lending platform FLOOSS.

The pioneering partnership has created Bahrain’s first Open Banking-enabled digital lending service, significantly reducing loan approval times to mere minutes using Tarabut’s Income Verification solution.

Previously, loans could take up to two weeks to approve. By leveraging the latest Open Banking APIs, FLOOSS customers now enjoy a seamless lending journey with enhanced security and no longer need to submit salary certification during the application process manually.

Abdulla Almoayed, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Tarabut, said, “We are proud to announce our latest partnership with FLOOSS, one of Bahrain’s leading lending platforms. Together, we are promoting financial inclusion and developing Bahrain’s financial infrastructure in line with the country’s plans for a robust financial ecosystem. Everyone should have access to affordable and efficient lending facilities, and this partnership is a crucial step towards that goal”.

Fawaz Ghazal, Chief Executive Officer of FLOOSS, said, “The customer lending experience and journey must be reimagined; customers expect more from their financial service providers. Working with the team at Tarabut, FLOOSS has implemented a customer-first solution that improves lending processing times to a few minutes and more seamlessly than any other lenders, anytime and anywhere. We are proud of the innovative work and look forward to more announcements with our partner, Tarabut, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia soon”.

As Tarabut collaborates with more lenders, financial enterprises and banks across the MENA region, the payment landscape is rapidly becoming more diverse and modern. Open Banking technology is a key feature of modern financial infrastructures and helps businesses maximize revenue, reduce operational costs and enrich customer experiences.
