How does it work?

Once the funds have been depleted, the card needs to be reloaded with additional funds to continue using it. The llagiisaq Card can be used as a budgeting tool, for travel, or by individuals who may not qualify for traditional credit cards. It offers many of the same benefits as a traditional credit card, such as convenience and security, but without the risk of accumulating debt.
