Mobile banking for people with disabilities

At Purple, we’re on a mission to empower people with disabilities to achieve financial independence. Purple is backed by the team at youBelong who built the first social network for people with differing abilities. The launch of the Purple spending account and debit card is our first step in building a more inclusive financial system. 


We chose the name Purple because it’s Christian’s favorite color! The color purple also represents wealth, creativity, independence and inclusion. It’s our goal to make banking more inclusive for everyone and the color purple embraces these core values.

People with disabilities lack access to affordable financial services because they are overlooked by traditional financial institutions. As a result, people with a disability are more likely to be unbanked and underbanked than those living without a disability. With Purple, we can provide people with disabilities the tools they need for a brighter financial future. We’re excited for the road ahead. Are you ready to start banking with Purple?
