We are honored to announce that Ganaz has received the 2023 Geeks Give Back award from GeekWire.

Our team continues to work very closely with ag employers and HR professionals to understand challenges in the hiring process. Last year, these insights, coupled with our team’s hard work, enabled the development of an innovative payroll card with features built for the realities of agriculture.

The Ganaz payroll card is the first to enable unbanked farmworkers’ text-based access to a digital wallet, digital pay stubs, and digital remittances. Ganaz is demonstrating its commitment to financial solutions that delight both growers and farmworkers.

With so many other companies in the Pacific Northwest applying technology to good causes and working to improve the world around us, we’re so excited to receive this award.

Fellow 2023 Geeks Give Back award recipients are:
