Both parties officially entered into strategic cooperation and announced that they would jointly launch "e-purchase loan", a personal consumption loan product, in 37 cities across China.

He didn’t feel relaxed until the appearance of “e-purchase loan” launched by IB. “All users of www.focus.cn with stable jobs or real estate can make an application by way of credit, without mortgage and guarantee, and the loan can be used to meet the needs of large household consumptions. The 'e-purchase loan’ is just simply customized for me!” He told the reporter with great excitement that the O2O applying method, online application and offline examination and extension, made it very convenient to apply.
