Our vision is to create the most helpful digital money account, ever. An account that makes it easy to understand where and how your money is going, that automatically categorizes spending and gives you the data you need to make informed decisions.

Along the way, we are partnering with government departments and NGOs to bring financial education to urban and rural communities in Zambia by way of financial literacy courses that can be taken on even the most basic mobile phone.
