Through the Global Good Fund, The SFF supports Vaibhav Lodha. Lodha is the co-founder of ftcash, one of India’s fastest growing FinTech companies, empowering 60+ million underserved micro-merchants through financial inclusion. He was inspired by his newspaper vendor, Pankaj, who was denied a bank loan and unable to scale his business. Pankaj is one of millions in India who are unable to access capital from banks, as financial institutions lack data and appropriate risk modeling systems to asses eligibility for loans. ftcash uses a proprietary algorithm to understand credit-worthiness, along with psychometric analysis on their platform.
Through the Global Good Fund, The SFF supports Wemimo Abbey. Abbey grew up living paycheck to paycheck in the slums of Lagos, Nigeria. His family was excluded from the traditional financial system, and turned to rotational savings to pay for school and food. Wemimo understood first-hand the power of community savings, and digitized the process through Esusu. A venture backed company that empowers communities to save better, Esusu helps people build credit and bridge a permanent gap to financial access and inclusion.
