Buddy is an internet banking application created to help people with their banking affairs. You can send Buddy an app message if you have questions about bills, allowances or the amount of your benefit. Buddy looks with you and gives useful tips to save on purchases or fixed costs.
Buddy Payment was founded by the social entrepreneurs behind YX Impact Innovations, who previously developed, among other things, the “pin collection bus” and payment platforms for charities. With a technical team of 11 people, Buddy Payment has now developed the Buddy app to support vulnerable Dutch people with their financial affairs and thus prevent debts.
The Buddy app has been developed in collaboration with professionals from municipalities, credit banks and debt counseling organizations.
