TNG Digital is committed to promoting financial inclusion for all, especially refugees and asylum-seekers and aims to empower refugee communities with the financial tools refugees and asylum-seekers need to build stable, self-sufficient lives.

For refugees and asylum-seekers, access to essential financial services remains a challenge in Malaysia. UNHCR highlighted the constraints refugees face when it comes to accessing financial services and it is a key component of achieving protection and long-term solutions for refugees.

This collaboration aims to greatly increase access to critical financial services for refugees and asylum-seekers, which can be benefiting to both refugees and the host community.
