The inaugural group of nine Financial Solutions Lab companies, whose stories are shared in the forthcoming pages, aim to help low-income consumers better manage their money across all aspects of their lives. For example, PayGoal, run by New York nonprofit Neighborhood Trust, helps hourly wage employees allocate their paychecks; SupportPay gives divorced parents an easy and digitized way to exchange child support; Digit provides users with an automatic savings tool run through text messaging; and Puddle offers an alternative lending platform based on group borrowing. The companies — which also include Ascend Consumer Finance, Even, LendStreet, Prism, and Propel — each tackle particular cash-flow issues with the goal of helping consumers improve their financial situation. Each of the nine companies has been carefully vetted for quality, consumer protections and impact.
