LEAF FOR REFUGEES AND MIGRANTS
As families are forced to flee persecution around the world, they have little time to grab limited cash and valuables before leaving their homes. During the long and dangerous journey, refugees face peril at every step. Violence, theft, and natural disasters claim family fortunes and diminish hope. Outside of forfeiting value, carrying cash is often the only option. On top of being inconvenient and expensive to exchange across borders, this exposes families to additional risk.
MOBILE MONEY AND REMITTANCES
How is Leaf different than mobile money or remittances? What exactly is mobile money and how does Leaf work with it? Leaf builds on top of existing systems like mobile money and remittances to make cross-border financial services accessible, affordable, and convenient.
Mobile money is usually domestic, built for peer-to-peer transactions on the same network. Remittances are typically viewed as transactions originating from the US and EU. With growing numbers of intra-Africa transactions, Leaf represents the best way to easily send money across Africa.
HOW LEAF USES BLOCKCHAIN TECHNOLOGY
Leaf is developing a mobile application platform to facilitate cash to virtual currency conversion through blockchain technology. Blockchain technology with its distributed ledger, decentralized administration, and secure cryptography presents an opportunity to provide affordable financial services to people crossing through multiple countries.
