Discover Yethu

Our vision

To offer more features that can make a positive impact in the creation of new savings communities, the organization of members and the eventual financial returns of anyone using Yethu.

We see ourselves at the forefront of the community savings industry, which we aim at enabling South Africans to escape the grasps of loan sharks and lifelong debt. We want Yethu to have contributed to a reduced Gini Coefficient and empowered South Africans to live a more fruitful and enjoyable life one with less financial stress and hardships, and where education, birthdays and Christmas celebrations are not just attainable for the wealthy minority.

Our Team

The team at Yethu is made up of a diverse group of individuals ranging from community leaders and Stokvel members to individuals with up to 10 years’ experience in mobile banking. The team also includes software developers from home and abroad as well as mentors and board advisors with backgrounds in international business consulting.
