Rising entrepreneurs!? It is our time. Struggling artists?! It is our time. Airfordable is clearly a gift from heaven to any rising entrepreneur who wants to fly on a budget.
What is Airfordable?
“… a Chicago based tech startup that allows users to pay for airline tickets in installments. It’s easy, travelers submit a screenshot of an itinerary along with the trip details and then Airfordable presents a payment plan. After making an initial deposit, regular payments can be made on the overall balance through the date of departure.
It’s an option for those low on cash or credit, as well as those wanting to lock in a fare, said cofounder and CEO Ama Marfo.
The Ghana native was inspired with the idea while attending Drexel University in Philadelphia.
“I wanted to see my family in Ghana during school breaks, but couldn’t afford the $2,000 ticket,” she said. “I stayed in the dorm alone or with other international students who couldn’t go home. Because of this personal frustration, I set out to determine how to make travel more accessible.””
Ok rising bosses, what just happened here? She saw a personal need and turned it into an amazing business that helps thousands of people across the world! There are over 27,000 people in the Airfordable community flying around the world and even in their own country on an affordable budget!
According to the Huffington Post:
“A lot of people, especially those who live paycheck to paycheck, don’t have the money to pay for plane tickets upfront,” says Ama Marfo, co-founder of Airfordable. “But that shouldn’t stop them from traveling or resorting to credit cards to pay for plane tickets.”
