I think it's very important for college students to have the Arbol app. As someone who has never had the opportunity to learn how to manage money in high school, I know firsthand this is a useful tool for first generation college students.

An Empathic Approach

Built with a purpose

Arbol's platform embodies the firsthand experiences of its co-founders, who are first-generation college graduates and have encountered financial challenges themselves. With input from institutional staff and students, Arbol was developed collaboratively, ensuring it addresses the real-world concerns of its users. As part of the University at Buffalo incubator program and with a college campus advisory board, Arbol is deeply integrated into the academic community, continuously refining its services to better serve students and institutions alike.

"Villa Maria chose to partner with Arbol because we have a very strong commitment to supporting low income students. Arbol's whole mission is to provide financial and also other types of support to help students be successful. It's a perfect mission match"
