Who is Gojoko?

In the early 19th Century, the Agrarian reformer, philosopher and economist Sontoku Ninomiya invented the credit cooperative ‘Gojyoko’ – which is where our name derives from.

Using those early ideologies and driving them into the 21st century, Gojoko was born.

We take technology one step further. The FinTech eco-system combines the strengths of various IT platforms such as Mambu, ADP, SalesForce and AWS into an end-to-end loan processing solution. Gojoko has integrated risk management and data analytic services, empowering credit unions to compete against high-cost lenders.

Why Choose Gojoko

Gojoko is supporting and helping a network of Community Banks/Credit Unions to grow and expand into modern financial institutions offering services to its members across the UK. Gojoko provides support by giving easy access to its technology and services.
