Laudato Si’ Challenge- Top 10 Companies
Who we are: Leaf is a trusted financial institution for refugees and migrants, helping them protect, retain, and move money across borders through digital financial services.
What we do: Leaf enables economic security for the stateless and excluded by facilitating the storage and transport of assets across borders. Refugees and migrants are often forced to carry cash when fleeing conflict, which is dangerous, inconvenient, and expensive to exchange. Leaf makes virtual banking available through mobile phones and blockchain technology—no smartphone required. By eliminating the need to carry cash, Leaf helps protect customers and their savings across borders. By opening channels for international money movement, Leaf increases customers’ access to their own savings and to those willing to contribute into their accounts.
