Launched in April this year, TNM Mpamba Limited also launched a special package Mudzi Wathu Village Bank — a special wallet to provide convenience and security to savings or lending groups in the country.
The group wallet allows members of registered and formal savings/lending groups to migrate from their traditional way of processing their loan transactions into digital using Mpamba platform — which was designed to respond to the needs of savings groups such as village banks in the provision of safety for their money.
Many village banks and savings groups have been defrauded by people entrusted to manage their financial affairs by robbing all the money saved and bolting to other countries especially South Africa.
Thus the group wallet innovation was set to enable savings groups to create digital identity and enhance formal financial inclusion while improving transparency.
