My name is Oyeyebi Ridwan Oyewale, a final year computer science student of Ahmadu Bello University Zaria Kaduna State, I am a problem solver, a great team player and i love innovation and entrepreneurship, I am also the CEO of Urban Desk Ltd, a company duly registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission in Nigeria.
The idea to build a business around thrift was birthed during the COVID-19 lockdown when I noticed that a lot of people ranging from students to government workers to business people to artisans were able to attain financial stability in those trying times by conducting thrift but the traditional way of thrifting or group contribution is faced with so many challenges ranging from security, trust, lack of transparency, accountability and reliability, also ease of use and access as the thrift collectors go from house to house or shops to shops or from offices to offices as the case may be to get the contributions of the members.
We solve these problems and more associated to conducting thrift by creating an app that ensures transparency, ease of use, security and trust and this gave birth to KoloPurse, KoloPurse is a platform that seeks to automate the traditional thrift process in Nigeria.
KoloPurse will provide users with a platform where they can register, create groups, set the amount, interval (daily, weekly or monthly) and invite friends or join already-existing groups
to conduct their thrift from the comfort of their smartphones. @decentralizenubia @olutaiwo
