Building a mobile bank with Velmie
Our team of seasoned professionals effectively handles every step of the software development process by applying technical, business, and compliance expertise.
Today about 980 million women still have no access to financial services - which makes 56% of all unbanked adults globally. This means that their money is not protected, they have no access to savings or checking accounts, and they are unable to receive loans, get insurance or life assurance. What is more, those without an account, tend to be concentrated among poorer households.
Bringing more women into the financial system historically leads to financially stronger families, communities, and business sectors — which together catalyze and sustain a stronger overall economy. With modern technology solutions, it’s possible to give women products that make financial services easier, safer, and simpler.
Our client is an ambitious Fintech startup in Singapore that is fueled by the idea of empowering entrepreneurial women with a user-centric mobile banking solution. Their mission is to support underbanked women worldwide by giving them access to financial services. With this solution, women will receive the ability to open accounts, receive loans, launch impactful, enterprising ideas, and grow their businesses.
The client was looking for a provider to handle the custom development of the banking application and applicable integrations. While the plans are to launch the solution in many regions across the world, scalability over time is one of the most critical aspects.
The client partnered with Velmie to build an end-to-end product for specific markets and audience. Velmie provided a team of developers with related background in banking and finance to build the mobile app following the idea and product concept of our client.
It is now a mobile wallet app that is set to bring financial freedom and flexibility to many unbanked women in Singapore and extend worldwide. The solution is powered by Rapyd Platform which is a reasonable fit for further global expansion. Rapyd makes it simple to integrate local payment and fintech capabilities into the app.

However, there are alternative channels available for cross-border transfers, helping to decrease fees a lot. One of them was implemented in this project as well so customers can enjoy international transfers at affordable fees.
