Its flagship product, Kueski Pay, allows customers to make purchases and pay later, both online and in-store. Additionally, the company offers Kueski Cash, a personal loan product. 

Applying artificial intelligence, Kueski enhances access to financial services at scale.

What business problem did Veriff solve for Kueski?


Kueski’s credit approval process is completely digital and fully automated, so it is of the utmost importance to balance the best user experience—based on a simple, fast, clear, and streamlined process—with secure operation. The main challenge is to verify the identity of our users seamlessly and prevent fraud cases. 

Kueski has invested heavily in a strong framework to address fraud prevention and identity verification holistically, including technology developed both internally and externally provided by key partners like Veriff. 

“We have been partnering with Veriff since 2020 to address identity verification and to acquire valuable additional information to integrate into our fraud controls, said Sahari Cabello, SVP of Credit Risk at Kueski. “Fraud challenges are very dynamic; new patterns arise frequently, and the existing ones change very fast, so close communication, high collaboration and effective responsiveness between Veriff and Kueski have been critical to helping us evolve and face the day-to-day challenges and maintain the great experience that we look for in our users.”
