Savings Month 2014

July is National Savings Month

The focus is on the informal sector and the theme is “my savings, my future: time to build”. A flagship event for Savings Month 2014 will be a Stokvel Expo, which will have the following objectives:

  • To link Stokvel Groups/Associations with the formal financial institutions that could service them
  • To gain an in-depth understanding of the various stokvel models
  • To investigate the implications of stokvel activities to overall household savings
