Humaniq pointed out in a press release: “Humaniq is a movement of tech for good and offering a simple and secure mobile banking app for the unbanked.”
“We have created a safe, strong financial tool, specifically designed to be used by people who are undereducated or who don’t possess identification. Most of them live in emerging economies on less than two dollars a day. We believe we can change that.”, explained the company on their website.
