Inclusive Action for the City is a community development nonprofit based in Los Angeles, dedicated to uniting people to foster robust local economies that uplift low-income urban areas. It achieves this through advocacy and transformative economic development initiatives.

The Opportunity:

Inclusive Action's emergency fund aimed to offer financial aid to Los Angeles street vendors impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, necessitating a secure and efficient method for fund distribution.

The Solution:

Onbe collaborated with Inclusive Action for the City, deploying a rapid payout solution within 24 hours. This approach provided affected street vendors with prepaid Mastercard cards, ensuring immediate and universal access to the funds.

The Results:

Given that many street vendors have only enough cash to last them about 27 days, the Onbe-powered solution was pivotal. It offered them instant access to emergency funds, enabling them to cover rent, buy groceries, and offset lost income during the pandemic.
