Co-founder and CEO, UangTeman.com
When Aidil Zulkifli is not acting as voluntary legal counsel at the Cat Welfare Society of Singapore or advising start-ups, he can be found running UangTeman. An avid technopreneur with a great interest in FinTech, Aidil has a vision of creating reliable access to alternative credit for underbanked Indonesians. Upon realizing that people were unable to obtain loans because of inflexible requirements implemented by financial institutions, he decided to fill in the gap to provide financial relief to Indonesians. Hence, he co-founded UangTeman.com in 2014 as the first online short-term loan service provider in Indonesia with a cost-effective, efficient, and transparent process. UangTeman provides loans for individuals with limited credit to meet their needs such as medical bills, school fees, and more. In this manner, he hopes to empower Indonesians to fulfill socio-economic goals and progress up the financial access ladder. Prior to UangTeman, he graduated with honours from National University of Singapore’s Law school, and worked as a commercial lawyer at Duane Morris & Selvam LLP. His first two fintech start-ups, KreditAja.com and LoanGarage.com (a financial product comparison portal), were acquired by Moneysmart.sg in 2014.
