F1Soft Group, a driving force digitizing Nepal’s financial services since 2004!!!

F1Soft Group is a digital ecosystem of goods and services that makes financial services more accessible to Nepali customers and allows them to participate in the formal digital economy in easy, inexpensive, and safe ways. They are a Digital Financial Services (DFS) holding firm with more than 16 years of expertise in various incarnations. They've spent more than a decade developing DFS products and services, and they're pleased to have created Nepal's first online payment gateway and digital wallet.

The F1Soft Group is a mobile banking pioneer and a trusted technology partner to more than 50 Nepali banks and financial institutions.

They now have a staff of 700+ young people with experience in technology and management, distributed across 11 sectors but united by a passion for digital finance. Their team consists of competent engineers, inventors, and creative disruptors who are all working toward a same goal of serving every Nepali person on a daily basis. In a $30 billion economy, Nepal's digital financial penetration rate is chronically low, with best estimates ranging from 2% to 3% of total transaction volume. Despite the fact that the banking system is becoming more computerized, 51% of the country's population remains unbanked. However, about 70% of Nepal's population is under 40 years old and well-educated.


The penetration rate of mobile phones is above 130 percent, and the cost of mobile internet (data) has dropped by 20 times in the last five years, making it more inexpensive and accessible to the majority. F1Soft believes that Nepal is approaching a digital tipping point that will save billions of dollars in wasted transaction costs and economic rents due to increased transparency. Furthermore, leveraging technology to enable quick and inexpensive access to financial services is a key contributor to economic growth, particularly for a landlocked and geopolitically challenged country like Nepal. To support Nepal's digital transformation, F1Soft has been steadily establishing an ecosystem of digital goods and services.

All of their offerings, whether as a core asset or as a value addition, are meant to integrate into and contribute to this ecosystem.

With the addition of new pathways, innovations, and technology, the ecosystem continues to evolve. However, it will continue to exist in order to achieve their goal of being a household brand that every Nepali utilizes every day to satisfy their digital financial demands. By 2020, the total number of mobile banking subscribers utilizing F1Soft's platform will have surpassed 10 million. On eSewa, the total number of registered users has surpassed 3 million. The central bank granted Fonepay Payment Service a Payment Service Operator (PSO) license, making it Nepal's first mobile payment network. In the fonepay network, the total number of retail businesses accepting QR payments has surpassed 100,000.


F1Soft has announced FoneLoan, a digital finance solution allowing banks to give short-term rapid loans via mobile banking. The F1 Soft group has established itself as the leader in Nepalese digital financial services, with the objective of "connecting individuals to digital financial services in easy, accessible, and safe ways." They are working with a variety of partners to improve and optimize Nepal's financial services industry.
