Turning analog credit unions in emerging markets into digital banks

PROBLEM

3 billion people are not profitable for fair capitalism, so they are un- or under-banked, leaving them vulnerable to predatory digital lenders, high risk pricing (justified by their thin credit files), data privacy abuse and public debt shaming.

SOLUTION

A digital banking platform for credit unions that turns any financial cooperative serving the unbanked into a digital bank, offering modern financial services at the last mile. The platform is cloud-based and is built specifically for credit unions, guaranteeing near-perfect availability and a superior user experience.
