Provide a unique self-serve experience to your Sacco members on platforms they already use.
Kwara is a Nairobi - Berlin based fintech company, founded in 2018 with the aim of empowering SACCOs (credit unions) in emerging markets to make the shift to digital banking.
SACCOs have seen tremendous growth over the past few years in Kenya, with over 14,000 registered cooperative societies and a net saving of over $17.5 billion for the year 2021. Though they are major economic contributors, their adoption to digitization has not been proportionate to their rate of growth, and this saw many of them lose to well structured and resourced incumbent banks. The situation worsened with the onset of the pandemic which highlighted the necessity for digitization.
It is with such gaps in mind that Kwara built their digital platform to offer a secure, cloud-based and future-proof digital banking solution that is infinitely scalable and affordable to the credit unions.
Kwara provides Saccos with a management platform to help run and derive maximum efficiency in their operations from any location, at any time.
With their next generation, end to end neobank, geographical limitations are shattered as the Sacco members will have instant access to their balances, financial statements and services such as loans, repayments and insurance regardless of their physical location.
This is expected to rapidly improve the growth of credit unions, as members can sign up and access personalized services from anywhere while eliminating the archaic paper-based systems and the expensive need for setting up elaborate branches.
Kwara’s customer-centric style gives power back to the Sacco members, so that credit unions have the freedom to focus on their core business and more value-added tasks. The platform will help ensure compliance, and increase the credit union’s capacity to lend.
As of May 2022, Kwara is serving 85 credit union and counting
