Our Story

Our story is built on our belief that all people should have access to affordable, secure, real time financial tools, whether they have a traditional bank account or not. Our goal is to provide low cost, high quality banking to those whose hard work and dedication helps support family members who are far away and need money to cover their basic daily needs.

The Cellfunds story was born out of compassion for those living in the margins of life – the ones most banks have forgotten. The ones who don’t have access to traditional financial solutions.

Central to the Cellfunds story is our commitment to giving back to our local and global community. Cellfunds donates to non-profit agencies that are making a real difference in our global neighborhood.

Our story is about quality. Our story is about compassion. Our story is about giving back. Join our story. We’re just getting started...
