What’s affecting the MoneyMe share price?
Looking deeper into the numbers, MoneyMe says its personal loans and freestyle divisions continue to drive the majority of growth in the business – both being quite resilient during lockdown.
Autopay, MoneyMe’s consumer car financing facility, achieved “significant growth despite the challenges of car buyers during lockdown”.
