OneLoad is the largest non-banking digital transaction platform in Pakistan and serves several million customers each month. Many small shopkeepers download and use OneLoad’s android application. It partners with banks and telecom companies to offer services including payments, cash deposits and lending.

The company hopes to become the “largest banking platform in the country for the unbanked world, the financially excluded market,” Muhammad Yar Hiraj, founder and chief executive officer at OneLoad said in an interview. “The aim is to become the largest micro branch for the unbanked without actually owning any branch.”

Last year, OneLoad operates through its 40,000 agents and did about $100 million. The company wants to increase daily transactions to one million a day from the current level of up to 400,000.

Just recently, Pakistani FinTech startup Dbank raised $17.6 million in a seed funding round, the largest ever in Pakistan. Dbank is in the process of building a user-centric digital banking system based on ethical banking. Dbank is connected to government-led initiatives to modernize the country’s payment infrastructure to increase financial inclusion.
