We’re undeniably in strange times. Even though there’s reason to remain optimistic, the economic and health consequences of C19 are far from over. If we continue to vaccinate enough of the population we can reach herd immunity, which means businesses will be more inclined to hire leading to an overall economic rebound.

Jerome Powell, the Chairman of the Fed, put it like this:

What we’re seeing now is really an economy that seems to be at an inflection point. And that’s because of widespread vaccination and strong fiscal support, strong monetary policy support. We feel like we’re at a place where the economy’s about to start growing much more quickly and job creation coming in much more quickly.

Translation: Things are looking up! In the meantime, a vast majority of the population is just getting by and needs support.

Here’s what we are doing about it… Piñata just launched a new initiative where we provide $1000.00 of rent relief to take the sting out of people’s largest monthly expense… their rent.

Our first recipient has a special story. Meet Cristian, a self-described creative with a passion for investing in the foreign exchange market, who has demonstrated an incredible amount of resilience against all odds. To start, Cristian has taken care of his ailing mother who has been hospitalized 20 times in the past 6 months. This has put a terrible strain on the family finances precisely at a time when there wasn’t any margin to spare. Yet despite all the obstacles, Cristian began investing in the foreign exchange market with some early indications that he has a knack for it. We are definitely rooting for him!

We are definitely rooting for him!When we asked Cristian what it meant to win the money, he said, “I’m truly grateful, despite what my mom is going through, she has something to look forward to. I finally won something in my life.” We believe this is just the beginning of a new winning streak for Cristian and his family.
