User Experience

DreamStart Labs and AgilityIO implemented a human-centered design methodology called Rapid Prototyping - all product design begins with a deep understanding of the goals and needs of end users while using restraint in defining requirements.

Each new product sprint is designed to validate assumptions with end users at every step of the way, a process that is crucial in order to maximize the likelihood of product success.

The Result

Working with Project Concern International, DreamSave is first targeting women in village savings and loan groups, working with them to save towards a central investment fund, which is then used for business loans to members. Unlike outside bank loans, all interest payments go back to the group, so when one member's business grows everyone benefits.
