The winning project leverages the strengths of BanQu and Boloro, enabling the ‘first-ever’ portability of critical data needed by refugees and people living in poverty across organizations, across borders and across economic opportunities. In collaboration with Payment Service Providers (PSPs), licensed by Central Bank of Jordan, the holistic solution will create a full payment ecosystem throughout Jordan, allowing the end user to have a unique identity, a legal source of funds & enable usage for purchasing goods and services, online and offline. The solution allows international NGOs (such as the United Nations) to transfer grant funds to refugee wallets in a secure and transparent way. Thus providers of financial and development resources can drive stronger data-driven insights on the outcomes of their programs.
Together, Boloro and BanQu are bringing this award-winning solution of financial inclusion and economic opportunity to refugees and extremely poor populations across several markets.
