About DFC Global Corp. DFC Global Corp. is a leading international diversified financial services company serving primarily unbanked and under-banked consumers and small business owners who, for reasons of convenience and accessibility, purchase some or all of their financial services from the Company rather than from banks and other financial institutions.
