Pod had been selected to be part of a cool initiative by the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), the Financial Innovation Lab! *woohoo!*
In this 3 months Bootcamp which gathered 18 fintech companies to pilot solutions serving the B40 segment. We are very humbled to see so many different companies of different verticals and stages coming together to solve the planning, saving, spending, and borrowing for individuals with household income below RM3,000.
Pod aspires to be an inclusive digital bank that helps youth save money for their goals and personalize a financial experience that helps improve their overall financial being. To be included in this bootcamp means we get to understand the pain points that people are struggling to meet ends meet currently face. We had people asking us “save what? I barely have enough by the end of the month to get by”.
We’re building a feature (in collaboration with a merchant that we will announce later) to cater to this group. To those who think you need to save a big amount of money to make a difference, this feature is for you. Hint: sedikit sedikit lama lama jadi bukit.
