In 2020, Pauline moved in with her older sister for a couple of months after the birth of her niece Sophia. In the closeness of her sister’s apartment, Pauline experienced the joys of parenting and the stress of making important financial decisions on no sleep.
At the same time, Julie welcomed her new daughter after five years of trying to conceive thanks to IVF (which was made possible through an employee benefit). Julie has always believed that if we can provide support to parents, we can empower them to raise happy, healthy, and safe children.
Pasito was born out of our parallel personal experiences and desire to better financial wellness for families.
