After years of diving through the problem, recruiting the right team, and analyzing four billion transactions to create our secret sauce. Finally, we had member number one!
Countless times, we contemplated key questions. Will people like Brigit? Are members going to trust us as a company working on real problems we relate to or fear us as another heartless, villainous financial institution? Can Brigit work responsibly and will the community continue to spend wisely?
*Drum roll please*
After enrolling hundreds of thousands of members and advancing millions – the results are finally in! Today, we are full of pride having fulfilled our promise to help those awaiting paychecks become stress-free.
It’s the little things that make a difference to change one’s quality of life. For one member, the ability to fund an emergency purchase helped save his job. Another member, single mother was able to mark an important family milestone by taking her daughter out for a graduation dinner.
“For one member, the ability to fund an emergency purchase helped save his job.”
As we expected 90%+ of our members have used our advances for recurring responsible reasons.
…Including a few notable mentions like transport services such as Uber, Lyft, and food purchases at McDonald’s, Burger King and Taco Bell!
A note for the future
As a famous Chinese proverb proclaims, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Although we may have covered the first step, we still have miles to go. And rest assured that with you by our side, we will cover the distance.
To all of our present and future members – thank you for your trust in us. We will continue to work hard to have your back and empower you through your financial journey.
