SoLo Funds is a financial service provider enabling a marketplace where members can request and fund emergency needs. SoLo launched in 2018 with the goal of providing a lending alternative that was equitable, empowering, and community-driven. Since then, we’ve processed millions of transactions and redefined financial services for our community members. Today, we’re driven to new heights launching additional financial services, but grounded in the same hope and mission: to build a community that enables financial autonomy for all.
ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Rodney Williams is the Co-Founder of LISNR®, responsible for leading all of the company’s commercial activities and strategy execution as Chief Commercial Officer. He’s been with LISNR® since its founding and served as the CEO till August 2018.
SoLo’s story starts the way every SoLo request begins: with someone needing a hand. Our founders were noticing that family members, friends, and roommates were asking for financial help here and there, and they understood why. There weren’t any fair, reputable options for small, short-term loans. And so they set out to create one by harnessing the power of community.
SoLo was formed in 2018 to create a viable, non-predatory option for moments when life happens. We tap into the power of community and generosity to form an online safety net that is mutually beneficial to all of our members.
