Guppy is the next generation credit bureau. Through a secure, publicly accessible digital platform built on top of a Blockchain, data for credit decision making is easily uploaded, verified, offered & used. The existing credit bureau system is filled with erroneous data, lacks the flexibility to add new data sources, & hamstrung by bureaucratic processes. By bringing cryptocurrency technologies to bureau infrastructure, Guppy addresses these pain points & opens up new revenue opportunities for all members of the ecosystem.
Esusu uses data to financially empower marginalized Americans, students & immigrants. The company has currently deployed two service lines: 1- A smartphone app that helps individuals save more readily & access larger sums of capital through the digitization of rotational peer-to-peer savings & loan practices that are popular in immigrant communities; & 2 - Reporting of rental payments to credit bureaus to help individuals boost their credit scores.
Both service offerings work to address exclusion from access to affordable credit.
