Lean provides developers with a universal API to access their customer's financial accounts from across the Middle East. We came to the realisation that infrastructure barriers to entry were suppressing the growth of the fintech industry across our home markets and sought to build a product that would solve that once and for all.

Using Lean, developers of all levels of sophistication are now capable of building cutting edge financial solutions without worrying about the nuances at the infrastructure layer, freeing them up to focus on what matters most — their customers.
