GIMOGIMO, Vietnam’s FinTech start-up offering on-demand pay for blue-collar workers, announced that it had successfully raised $1.9 million in a Seed+ round led by Singapore’s Integra Partners. The round also saw participation from Resolution Ventures, Blauwpark Partners, and TNB Aura VN Scout.

According to GIMO’s Co-founder and CEO Nguyen Anh Quan, the new investment will help the company improve the financial stability and resilience of blue-collar workers, as well as fast-track financial inclusion in Southeast Asia.

“Blue-collar workers are among the most vulnerable to financial distress. When unexpected bills arise, they don’t have a lot of safe and affordable options. GIMO looks to change that. By helping workers get paid as they earn it, we hope to give them the peace of mind to focus on what matters”, he said.

Chris Kaptein, Partner at Integra Partners said, “We are proud to partner with Quan, Ngoc, and the entire team at GIMO. We have been impressed with GIMO’s vision to bring Earned Wage Access, and broader financial services and benefits to Vietnam’s blue-collar workers. We share a strong belief that access to affordable and responsible financial services is a key pillar for sustainable growth, and look forward to partnering with GIMO on their journey to serve Vietnam’s blue-collar workers”.

Officially rolled out in early 2021, GIMO allows employees to access their earned salary almost instantly via a mobile app integrated with the company’s payroll system. Users could also keep track of their workdays and daily earnings in real-time, as well as receive personal finance tips.

With the fresh funding, the company plans to allocate more resources for hiring senior engineers, strengthening risk management competencies, and integrating advanced technologies such as data analytics and artificial intelligence to enhance customer experiences.

Earlier in March, the company just announced an undisclosed amount of seed funding from ThinkZone Ventures, BK Fund, and a group of angel investors.
