Khusa Village Savings Application has a chance to win an award after earning a nomination ahead of this year’s World Summit Awards.
The World Summit Awards will be held later in November in Accra, Ghana and according to www.worldsummitawards.org, Khusa was nominated as best national digital solution for Malawi.
Angle Dimension a local firm which created the app said the nomination means a lot as Khusa being a mobile application allows groups to save and access group loans through the creation of digital wallets.
“Khusa also allows groups to keep track of their group savings and loans unlike the manual process of managing savings groups. The application allows group members to push and pull funds to their group via mobile money and bank wallets,” said Henry Alfred Sauzande, Angle Dimension Chief Technology Officer.
Sauzande said Khusa is helping community savings groups to reduce some of the risks connected with handling the hard cash during their monthly gathering by using available digital payment platforms to send money to their group and receive money.
He added that Khusa app is available on google playstore and can be downloaded after registering and signing up.
The World Summit Awards are a global initiative selecting digital innovations making positive impact on society.
“With this nomination in the Category Inclusion and Empowerment, Khusa qualifies for evaluation among over 400 international projects by the WSA Jury 2018,” said Manuela Wagner, Development and Communications Manager for World Summit Awards Network.
