A platform for shoppers to partner with their favorite local businesses, invest together and succeed as a community.
we've created a platform that enables small businesses to create and run campaigns inorder to raise money from customers to further expand their business. When a customer lends money, in return they get a prepaid card to shop, while the remaining money earns a small interest rate of say 3%. On top of earning interest, the customer also gets enrolled into loyalty program to shop things at discount. Local business, on the other hand, gets returning loyal customers who cares for the success of their business. Aside monetary benefits, both parties now have vested interest in the success of their local community as a whole.
First Degree is about using the idea that we are all connected to accomplish common good.
