Our Why

Over 90 million Americans cannot access traditional bank accounts or get the credit they need. We believe your financial past shouldn't be the sole determinant of your future. What you do today matters, and sometimes you a need a hand-up and a fresh start. Cambio can be that fresh start you deserve.

While there are many banking apps built to provide banking services, none were built to help people change their financial behaviors. There are other lifestyle apps that help us lose weight, de-stress and learn new languages. Cambio was founded in 2019 to be a financial lifestyle app, to help those who have the will and want to develop the skills.

Our story

Our difference

A lot of mobile apps offer a “free” banking account. They make their money every time you use their card at a merchant or retailer. That means they make money if you overspend and build bad habits. We don’t believe in that, so to make things simple we charge a $9.99 monthly subscription to provide our services. This enables us to cover costs to our card provider, bill pay provider, and other partners without prompting you to spend more money. Our goal is simple, get you back on track by incentivizing you to do the right things via our rewards program. Because when you win, we win!
