WHAT WE DO
We partner with charities struggling in the absence of banks to deliver financial support directly to people experiencing severe stress in crisis areas. We support them to improve three things that help build confidence of the banks and donors: internal processes, due diligence, and data protection. We strive to maximise the value of donations and gifts, minimise the risks, and build the foundation for sustained recovery in crisis situations.
Amanacard is also specifically designed for Arabic-speaking people seeking sharia-compliant and shared account options for managing their giving and spending. We're the first to provide a bespoke solution for those living in extreme contexts, those who identify with them through familial or cultural ties, and those who simply share our drive to serve people with dignity when they need outside help.
Digital account holders fall into key categories, distinguished by the colour of their Amanacard:
FAMILIES IN NEED
HEALTH & EDUCATION FACILITIES
In unbanked crisis zones, local merchants make it possible for these people and organisations to redeem digital points for cash or goods and services.
Our SecureAid platform and Amana apps streamline the management of payments, payroll and purchases between merchants, facilities and recipients.
The first to use the platform were NGOs experiencing payment backlogs of 3-12 months and suspension of critical programmes.
The hope with our support to charities is that, by providing a direct channel to people where they have begun to experience crisis, we will help reduce further displacement and the suffering it brings to those ultimately forced to leave their homeland.
WE PROVIDE PEOPLE IN CRISIS ZONES WITH SAFE PURCHASING POWER.
