JIA | Banking with Heart 🏦💖💞😻

Jia is on a mission to redefine the perceived definition of financial inclusion through innovative offerings to its customers using blockchain technology. 

Zach is a Co-Founder and CEO of Jia, a DeFi provider for a friendlier, fairer, more inclusive financial world. He began his work expanding financial access in emerging markets at McKinsey, where he worked on microfinance programs across East Africa and South Asia, and then at Tala, a fintech lender where he helped scale the business from Kenya to the Philippines, India and Mexico. He pivoted his career into web3 upon finding that it provides more viable solutions to the problem of financial inclusion. 

Jia breaks the bounds of being just another credit provider, they consider themselves growth partners to the businesses that they provide these facilities to. By creating service offerings that are more personal to the consumer, Jia is able to build a trust relationship with their customers and help them scale their businesses even quicker through added support. They are on a mission to provide tools for individuals and businesses to take control of their financial lives.

With time, businesses will be able to stake their Jia tokens in select protocols or on smaller businesses within the Jia ecosystem to get even more tokens as rewards. Investor liquidity will be deployed to use-cases with the most recognizable need, hence, also providing potential returns on investment to investors. 

Jia is on its way to creating a next-level solution that will revolutionise lending and credit, leveraging on blockchain solutions as a medium. See links provided to view career and investment opportunities with Jia and learn more about the protocol.
