Inclusive Finance for Emerging Markets.

Pillow exists to accelerate economic opportunities in emerging and frontier markets.

Nearly 3B users across Africa, LatAm, and South East Asia are deprived of foundational financial services that are taken for granted in North America, EU, and India/China.

This mission has enabled us to solve real financial challenges in markets such as Nigeria for thousands of people.
