Being the CEO & Founder of BLAK Financial Technology, Inc., Divine plans on using his life-story to empower those in the African-American community struggling with financial management and habits.
“It comes down to the struggle. I come from being impoverished and poverty stricken, and my whole life has been about trying to escape it. I’m focusing on financial services and banking — improving access, affordability and solving the financial exclusion problem that exists. It’s also strongly about social impact by teaching financial literacy and entrepreneurship education. This product is for those who dare to dream, be entrepreneurial and succeed and create something from nothing. It’s for those who come from poverty but aspire for wealth.” – Divine
