Nkwa / A digital piggybank to teach youths savings

Nkwa is a digital savings tool with a mission to teach young adults (18 to 38 years) in CEMAC a savings culture so that they can afford a much better & stable financial future. In CEMAC only about 15% of the entire region is banked and youths are mostly financially excluded. In Cameroon, at least 80% of the population needs to save at least 40% of their income to take care of basic needs.

Nkwa platform was released initially Oyesavings and since then has registered 300 users without marketing, with at least 5 of these users using saving every day. The Nkwa app has helped its users save more than 7 million Francs ($12,000 USD)
