How this social entrepreneur is bringing banks to the fingertips of the unbanked

Technology has touched our lives in a lot of ways. While some of us are privileged enough to see technology benefitting every aspect of our lives, a few of us are yet to be touched by its magic. It is this disparity that Dinis Guarda found distressing, leading him to founding Humaniq, a blockchain banking application, to address it.

Humaniq was launched in 2016 with a vision to build a world where the unbanked and underbanked around the world also have access to the banking and financial transactions. An estimated 2 billion people can be brought under the umbrella of financial inclusion with Humaniq’s services.
