Noburo is the intermediary platform which provides employer’s workers fair credit access together with solid financial literacy by means of digitalized tools. Digital financial management tools like Robo-Advisor and Noburo Score are Noburo’s solution available to every employee who joins the program. The platform has been designed to be accessible for the people at the very base of the pyramid so that they can continue their lives with our principle of “Wealth-being through literacy and credit access”.
“Wealth-being” is our jargon signifying a human potential to create his own financial happiness. Transforming from “Wealth” and “Well-being”, the word comprises three significant elements: an ability of financial management, living a dream life, and taking care of beloved ones. Noburo believes that “Wealth-being” is the birthright of everyone, regardless of one’s status. Trusting in our ways and solutions, we have been helping people unlock their innate potential and finally become “Wealth-being”.
The people who reach for help and find us, at Noburo called “Pi Fah”, implying blue (Fah in Thai) - collar or operational workers with financial problems. “I’d like to thank Noburo for helping me relieve from stress. Thank you for teaching me financial discipline. Every penny from Noburo will be fully utlized, no more splashing out. If only I found Noburo sooner, my life would have been a way better than ever.” said Utaiwan Wongpan, one of “Pi Fah” who succeeded the program with Noburo. “I have been longing for this day. The day that I can truly sleep with my eye closed without worries of insane interest whether it is weekly or monthly. In 2 years, I will pay off all the debts, and my life will be definitely happier than it used to be. I am wholeheartedly thankful for what Noburo did”.
Noburo trusts in the human potential to be “Wealth-being” and believes that the happiness will spread around and pass from one person to his/her families and colleagues, then a whole company and a society. The small beginning from a soul can ultimately result in a transformative social change.
