About the episode:
Daniel Shakhani is co-founder of Salary Finance, an award-winning FinTech platform that works with employers to help staff members facing financial difficulties in order to move from debt to savings. A business with a strong social mission, it provides low-interest loans to help employees avoid expensive payday lenders and build their credit scores. In this in-depth conversation, he describes how the company is expanding into the US with a pledge to help 10 million Americans get out of problematic debt, argues there is a lack of education around the link between money problems and mental health, and explains his motive behind founding the Financial Inclusion Alliance, a “movement” for banks, nonprofits and employers to work together to help people break free of poverty.
