42 million Americans receive government benefits, such as food stamps, on an EBT (electronic benefit transfer) card. But there's one big problem—it isn't user-friendly. To check your balance, you have to call a hotline or save your grocery receipts. As a result, these poverty-fighting programs aren't nearly as effective as they could be. That's where Propel comes in. Propel builds Fresh EBT, a smartphone app that allows users to see their balance and transaction history in seconds, for free. The app also provides a bunch of other helpful services. With over 2 million monthly active users, it's clear Propel is doing its part to fight poverty.
