The number of fintech companies grows each day, and they come up with more features catering to as many types of companies as possible.

Not to mention that they usually provide services faster and through more convenient channels! We wrote an article on fintechs’ growing popularity and how to open accounts with them, which you can check out here.

Our team also wanted to show some love to the agriculture business. Contrary to the opinions of some, these types of companies require a business account as well! It simplifies everything: from storing corporate funds and paying salaries to sending transfers to contractors and providing your employees with debit cards!
