Cashwagon: a disruptive force for the financial services industry
Cashwagon was created with a powerful mission: to disrupt the financial services industry by positioning financial assistance within reach of more people. According to KPMG 2018 report on Financial inclusion for Southeast Asia, about 70% of local people are not well served by mainstream financial institutions, and their needs are greater than most. Small, short-term loans can truly transform lives in developing countries like Vietnam.
If you believe in this mission, now it is your chance to diversify your investment portfolio by investing in driving financial inclusion in Vietnam. If you use Auto Invest, don’t forget to update your settings, so you don’t miss out!
