What members are saying
Finally! An economy for people like me: not a ton of money, but experience and talents to share.
With Simbi, I can access experiences I wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford. Think about how many services exist that you’d love to have. Then consider how many of those you’d actually pay for — probably not as many as you would like. For me, Simbi bridges that gap. It allows me to get services I might otherwise not access. Most of my money goes towards rent and life's basics, but I can use my Simbi income to treat myself or get services to help grow my business. It's like a bonus account, so I can buy the services I'd never accessed before, and I love it!

A trade is much more valuable to me than money. I believe Simbi offers a unique accessibility to goods and services that some people may not have in the usual market.
I recently left a very well-paying job to stay at home with my little guy. Although I’m short on money, I’m rich in time and love.
How can I express my stoke for a community economy based on mutual beneficence outside of capitalism? No can do. I’m all for sharing and learning skills, so Simbi just might be my paradise.
Anya, Reiki Healer
Thank you, Simbi for referring to us as people rather than ‘consumers’.
Service over salaries? Count me in! I am very interested in participating in an alternative economy that provides an exit from the current dollar-dominated corporate market. I have years of experience designing in various industries, I have worked full time as an designer for over a decade, and I can’t be more excited to share my talents with a community of like-minded, mini revolutionaries like myself.
