Founded by a team of Johannesburg-based entrepreneurs, PayCurve aims to help employees achieve financial wellbeing.

Tamir Sacks, CEO of PayCurve explains that an early salary access solution such as PayCurve is a necessity for most South Africans who live paycheque to paycheque each month. With the possibility of unforeseen expenses arising during the month, PayCurve provides an easy solution for locals.

Tamirm, says employees often turn to other emergency credit products such as payday loans and short-term credit. As such, South Africa has been crying out for alternative, affordable credit solutions, and we believe PayCurve offers this financial lifeline.”
