Building ecosystems

SaveAct has a vision of using technological advancements and access to markets to build an improved “ecosystem” with financial and other services designed around the needs of savings groups and, more generally, the rural poor, who continue to be largely excluded from the dominant development path of South Africa’s so-called “dual economy”.

We are building a communication platform with content designed to foster a shared knowledge and collective identity across savings groups and their members. In this way, we not only increase our outreach, but we also broaden the service portfolio available for members.
