At Wakandi, we have always focused on building products and services to support a more inclusive and sustainable society. It is our mission that has driven us to build an innovative solution for SACCOs and other savings groups. We are now live with our CAMS app in Tanzania. We are onboarding multiple SACCOs on our app to help them manage savings and loans effectively.
Today, we are elated to announce that we have joined Mastercard’s Lighthouse MASSIV Program to further scale our mission. We will be joining five other startups from Norway, Finland, and Sweden in this program to reach a global audience. Through this program, we will dedicate our operations to helping one billion people live more prosperous and secure lives.
