Jify’s founders created this user-friendly fintech platform to address that very gap with practical solutions that ultimately help convert borrowers into savers, in turn empowering their personal financial well-being.”

Apart from addressing the liquidity mismatch faced by the workforce through earned wage access, the fintech platform has also been developed to encourage users to track spending, set practical savings goals, facilitate smart budgeting and access simplified financial advice on the Jify app, accompanied by their digital card.

This can be reached with Jify digital card on the app where employees can avail of cashbacks and rewards along with other benefits such as smart budgeting and spending tracking.
