The user only needs an ID issued by the government of their country and allows individuals access regardless of their immigration status to start their financial growth journey.
“We are here to revolutionize the way immigrants do financial transactions. We want to promote financial inclusion to the unbanked and provide them with the most effective, safe, and convenient way to manage their funds,” said Val Infante, Chief Operating & Marketing Officer, MyBambu.
“We appreciate the continued support from the City of West Palm Beach and are excited to announce that we have created over 75 jobs since we relocated. MyBambu’s expansion as a fintech will continue to develop more career opportunities for local residents,” said Pedro Infante, Chief Compliance & Business Development Officer, MyBambu.
