"Moreover, the win is especially significant, as it coincides with mobiquity(R) Money's ten-year milestone."

Darlington Mandivenga, Group Chief Executive Officer at Cassava Fintech said, "The impact of community-based savings schemes on the well-being of African communities cannot be overstated especially in resource-poor environments. The concept of savings clubs is well established across Africa. Supporting such initiatives, which promote a savings culture has become an economic imperative as the money proceeds from these savings is used to feed and educate children. As a business, which has its roots on the African continent, Cassava Fintech is committed to supporting these groups by providing them with innovative ways of strengthening their saving clubs, making it easier and convenient for them to operate not only in Zimbabwe but also in the rest of Africa. Whilst we are grateful for having been recognized for this award the real accolade belongs to the women who strive each and every day to create a better life for themselves and their communities."
