Billions of people in emerging markets are coming online for the first time, most of them via mobile phones. Many have limited or no access to financial services.

JUMO combines technology with data to create progressive financial choices for anyone, anywhere. On the JUMO platform, a customer can configure savings, or lending product by amount, term and payment method. We believe any individual should be able to leverage their data footprint and access financial services tailored to their needs.
