Kava is the new way to save your money, earn daily interest and invest towards your dreams and ambitions. It’s safe, simple and convenient as all deposits are done on our secure app. All transactions from registration to transacting are on mobile, with zero paperwork. The App is available for free on the Google Play Store.
Kava was the first-ever authorized digital Independent Financial Agent (IFA) of East Africa’s leading investment firm Britam Asset Managers (K) Ltd. This means that Kava’s premier savings product – Kibaba Unit Trust – is managed by Britam as regulated by the Capital Markets Authority (CMA) and the Retirement Benefits Authority (RBA) in Kenya. As such, all customer deposits go directly to Britam.
Saving any amount above KES. 1,000 through Kava attracts returns of up to 10%p.a. (Terms and conditions apply). The attractive interest rate is driven by Britam, who invest in money markets and other sure investments then plough back the profit to Kava Savers as interest on top of their deposits.
The Kava App also enables one to set, manage and track Savings goals, keeping users accountable and in line to achieve life-changing goals like paying school fees, starting a biashara, buying a car, and other things.
You can withdraw your money anytime or better still, borrow against your savings.
