History of Kudough

Launched in October 2010, Kudough Credit Solutions aimed to provide consumers with a single, comparative view of their credit standing in the South African market. Once empowered with this information Kudough would further assist these consumers in building their credit status and overall financial standing.

In meeting the needs of local consumers, over time, Kudough also identified the demand to address the financial wellness needs of employees or consumer members of large financial service providers. To this end, Kudough now services 8 large corporate and financial service provider clients.

Kudough relaunched its services in 2018 to offer consumers a complete financial wellness journey, with access to appropriate and responsible financial services and has to date served more than 380 000 South African consumers.
