How to Develop a Healthy Saving Culture for your Chama

Malipo Circles

Chamas also known as ‘saving groups’ are becoming popular day in day out. Apart from the interests brought forth by the savings, Chamas are known for coming through in times of emergencies.

A successful chama is always characterized by a healthy saving culture. It is said a Healthy Chama is a Wealthy Chama. In this article, will be seeing how Malipo circles can facilitate your chama to have a healthy saving culture.

According to Malipo Circles the very first step to a healthy saving culture is registration of one’s Chama. Registration of a Chama not only renders the Chama un- fraud like but also gives its members an assurance of safety for there money. When a member of a registered chama misuses the money among other crimes, legal action can be taken upon them. Malipo app allows for a very easy Chama registration process.

Setting down of rules is, according to Malipo Circles this is very key in developing a healthy saving culture. These rules will help govern the members of the Chama on how much they will need to save and after how long, how much they are allowed to borrow, their expected monthly interests and monthly shares per loan. You are therefore made aware and get updates from the app to save.

It is prime that every chama needs to operate not based on its member’s personal interests but on a common agenda. All this is made easy by the Malipo app which allows record keeping and ease in requesting for a loan. The tracking of records and saving culture among the members will create a sense of competition within the group. Imagine the horror of people building homes and renting properties with money gotten in a chama and you are still renting?

Malipo app allows contribution from both its members and non members. The Chama circles not only provides a large interest rate that could enable one start their own chama but also eases contributions from mobile money, directly from bank accounts and in foreign currency. This provides conveniency, you don’t have to stop at a physical bank and withdraw only to deposit to another. The conveniency the app provides helps you to adamantly save within the comfort of your home.

Having a common agenda is very key in achieving a healthy saving culture. This can be achieved through a sit down with the members who should clearly state out their beliefs and expectations from the Chama. These personal expectations and beliefs should therefore be narrowed down to one. It’s all about creation of a balance.

Malipo circles believes that an engagement of members of a Chama is very important in achieving a healthy saving culture. Chama members should always sit to discuss issues such as how to deal with conflicts and money loss, how much money they intend to make and what investment really means to them. These among the standards of behavior laid out are meant for long time effect of the Chama. They help to facilitate this, by providing you to access to different workshops, help your chama’s invest and also tracking their credit and debit.

Remember, a Chama’s success is linked to a healthy saving culture and this culture can be achieved not by one but by all members of the Chama.
