DUCA Impact Lab brings together a network of organizations and companies who care about making a positive difference to people, non-profits and small enterprises who are underserved and overlooked by the traditional financial services model. Partners select the program(s) they wish to participate in and we work collaboratively to find innovative solutions to test and share with the wider community.

CacheFlo

cacheflo.co

CacheFlo is a Canadian based FinTech Company that builds behaviour-based spending management tools that financial institutions and organizations can use to help individuals and families get more life from the money they already have. Their suite of tools allows professional users to provide behavioural spending advice to those they are trying to help.

The CacheFlo Pro client portal enables individuals and families to share spending and other financial data with institutions or organizations in order to receive simple and personalized guidance on how to change spending habits. An organization's teams can quickly assess an individual for family's financial capacity for change within seconds of their information being submitted.

It’s not unusual for CacheFlo Pro to help financial institutions and organizations find hundreds of dollars a month leaking out. Sometimes as much as $1500/mo per household is easily freed up with simple behaviour changes. A significant portion of this found money is redirected to fund an individual or family’s short and longer-term financial goals resulting in more life from the money they already have!
