About Us

Our Mission

To help people save, build credit and build wealth, together.  
Sou Sou is a social banking account that uses social networking, peer accountability and lending circles to help people save, build strong credit and invest with people they trust at their local  bank.  

Our Tradition

 

 Sou Sou was inspired by traditional village savings and loans models that exist around the world.  In West Africa and the Caribbean, it is called sousou. In South Korea, the term is gaedon. In the Middle East, it is called gameya.  Millions of people - roughly 80% of the world's population, according to the World Bank - have been using informal savings and loan practices for centuries as a way to save and invest when banks and venture capital are not an option. We are modernizing this practice for the 21st-century borrower.
