BLender now in Israel, after get the financing plan in the next few months will be spread to Western Europe and Latin America market. Facing Geektime interview, BLender, the CEO of Gal Dr Aviv said they are a few specific countries: Colombia, Brazil, Germany, France, etc., he also said that some new features will be released, but he is not willing to disclose details.

the latter is the BLender business model of the driver. Aviv said: “we found that where there’s FICO credit scores, there will be a very powerful credit markets, such as the United States. But if you see no effective agency area, you can get credit is very low, the pricing is high.” And BLender noticed, because there is no rating agencies for small Banks to provide accurate information about the risk of default, so the big Banks and credit card companies often disputed.
