In an interview published on the Forbes website, BanQu’s Hamse Warfa discusses how BanQu is easing the burden of resettlement for refugees.

BanQu co-founder Hamse Warfa lived in Kenya’s Dadaab Refugee Camp for three years before moving to the United States. His experience as a refugee was fundamental in informing the vision behind BanQu, as he explains in an interview published on the Forbes website:

We created BanQu for the world’s poor, refugees and stateless people so they can live their lives like the rest of us: cumulatively. Let’s say you are in Kenya’s Dadaab Refugee Camp, where my family was, and you have to move to Uganda. BanQu helps you relocate as seamlessly as possible, bringing your relationships with you… BanQu is mobile and cloud-based and, importantly, you own your data.
