Our mission


Constantly using technological solutions, become the most convenient mobile application for the gold pledged loans


Our purpose


To become a trustful partner, and to offer such convenient and flexible solutions so that people make their gold work for them, creating additional value while keeping their gold in a safe and secured place.


Our story


Though many banks and financial institutions in Armenia provide gold pledged loans, and Banks are using mobile applications for a while, surprisingly for gold pledged loans no one, even in the region, suggests the provision of gold pledged loans via mobile application.
Founders of «DIGISAFE» aim to fill in the existing gaps, join their efforts and experiences in order using modern technological solutions to create a mobile application so that clients can get gold loans remotely. The specification of the business model is that client is not required to pledge and get a loan simultaneously. In other words in our model clients can pledge gold but take a loan later, only when it will be required, if not, then the client can take their pledge back anytime they wish without paying any fee for storage. The other difference of our product unlike existing options in the market is that «DIGISAFE» provides an opportunity to repay the loan or part of the loan, and retake the loan again without any limitation during the all-time of the loan agreement. This will give an opportunity to the client to repay the loan when no need for money, save interest and take a loan when there is a need for money again.


Our Services


"DIGISAFE" provides gold pledged consumer loans via its own mobile application. Loans provided only in Armenian Dram to resident and non-resident physical persons over 18 years old.
