“HUMBL is doing to global financial services what UBER did to the local taxi markets. Delivering high quality financial services by pairing local consumers and merchants together through mobile technology, anywhere in the world. Our younger Indian customers don’t want to visit multiple service branches to wait in long lines, pay expensive fees and highly variable rates. HUMBL gives them mobile financial services – faster, cheaper and in nearby locations.”
HUMBL further added that it will also be working with DIPL in support of globally innovative “Smart Grid” India government programs, which use biometric identifiers – like facial recognition or thumbprints – to help Indian customers with simplified banking, financial and government services at local HUMBL Hubs
