Description

ChamaPesa: Putting Kenyan Chamas on the Blockchain


How can the Chamas of Kenya and East Africa leverage blockchain technology to enhance their bookkeeping systems, governance and transparency. ChamaPesa is a blockchain mobile app for savings groups in Africa.


Savings groups are a mainstay in African communities, going by different names amongst different peoples - Susu, Chama, Bishi, Paare. After spending close to 1 and a half years working closely with Chamas, the team at ChamaPesa has come up with a blockchain tool based on Ricardian contracts that addresses much of the challenges holding back chamas from growing, scaling and even challenging banks.


ChamaPesa has developed a blockchain mobile savings tailored for the prevalent savings groups of Kenya, East Africa.


Join the ChamaPesa team of Ian Grigg, Eva Stoewe and Michael Kimani for an evening of discussion, networking, mixing and mingling.


  • Why blockchain technology is a great fit for Chamas

  • How ChamaPesa is putting Kenyan Chamas on the Blockchain

  • How savings groups in Africa offer an alternative banking model for a blockchain powered the internet economy


This event kicks off at 5pm and is limited to a capacity of 130 people. We shall have bitings, snacks and refreshments after the event.
