Project poster

Clique aims to develop strong financial communities so that immigrant students in the U.S.A. can create and utilize a financial support system to increase their economic impact. Clique brings to the U.S.A. an existing money pooling solution known around the world as `Ekub` (Ethiopia), `Bachat` (India and Pakistan), `Keh` (Korea) & `Tong Tin` (Cambodia) and digitize it to help immigrant students address their financial problems in a way that is well known to them. Clique helps students get an alternative solution to mitigate their financial woes resulting from debt while forging stronger ties with their communities.
