Problem

Financial risk and uncertain budgets are costly and most aid and development organisations pay more than they should for transactions. Navigating donor requirements and national regulations is also a lot of work for recipients of funding, taking time and resources from what they should be doing. To reach the SDGs, sustainable development needs new approaches in financial management.


}

Solution

We identify and help manage financial risks in aid and sustainable development projects, and work to make sure transactions are made at the best rates with the lowest fees. We also provide instant budgeting and financial reporting. Predictable funding leaves more time for our customers to focus on their mission and the results. With financial partners, we offer services tailored for the unique SDG context of working with donor funding, financial uncertainty, or in high-risk countries.

Target Beneficiaries

Our primary users, organisations working with foreign aid and sustainable development, are representatives of a sector with substantial international transactions, more than USD billion 150 per year. Adding other types of SDG funding, we are in a trillion dollar sector. Case studies have shown that we can increase available funding by 10-15% for many of our users. This is a huge improvement of aid efficiency.

Mission and Vision

Our vision is effective aid, where every dollar makes an impact. Our mission is to get more aid all the way to the recipient through better transfers and by informing the aid community about currency risks.
