Posted 2y ago


LOQBOX is a ‘fintech for good’ wanting to solve one of the biggest problems there is - money. Money is a leading cause of stress in many countries and often it’s the thing getting in the way of what we want most. One big part of the problem is being locked out of accessing financial goods and services on fair terms. Another is not having any rainy day funds for when things go wrong. And this is all made worse by a lack of financial education, meaning few of us feel empowered to improve our financial health. We believe everyone deserves the chance to build a brighter financial future, and we’ve built some really smart ways to help our members do that. We’re continually launching innovative new products to help our members get treated fairly in the financial game, and achieve their goals. Be part of our journey and mission to improve people’s financial lives.
