Every month, we shine a spotlight on one saver, asking them questions about their savings culture and how the product is specifically helping them shape how they spend and save for future responsibilities. Everyone has a different use for Piggybank, and honestly, it’s a delight!
So, here we go. Meet Nora.
What do you do?
I’m a digital Marketing Strategist.
When did you start saving with Piggybank?
I’m not sure, i think sometime in 2016
*hang on i’ll check the app*.
Yep! May 2016.
What are you saving towards?
When I first started saving, I wasn’t really saving towards anything, I was particularly curious to see how long i could save; but right now I’d say towards Travel.
What do you spend most of your income on?
I was going to say FOOD, but everyone who knows me right now is probably yelling ASOS, lmao.
Thank God for the Safe lock feature aka ‘’You can see but you can’t touch’’
What would you like to stop spending money on?
Gas! The one thing I really hate spending my own money on is fuel for my car. I know most people would say Data. Weirdly, i can understand paying for data but that FUEL thing gets under my skin. Cars that run on water soon please Amen?
What is your favorite food?
I don’t think I have a favorite food tbh it changes almost every month. I’ve been thinking about Sea Food Okro for a while now so I’m just gonna go ahead and say that.
Where is your dream vacation destination?
There’s too many. There’s Bali (to hug an elephant), Greece & the Maldives. If I had to pick just one though, then the Maldives. The tension is just too much on social media these days. That’s one trip I’m totally looking forward to, hopefully it doesn’t cost me my entire savings.
Within your savings period, have you ever been tempted to withdraw?
Yep, a couple times. Sometimes i fought the temptation other times i gave in. Thank God for the Safe lock feature aka ‘’You can see but you can’t touch’’
How many times have you withdrawn from your savings?
3 times if i’m not mistaken. the 1st was for a trip, the next was to shop on ASOS (don’t judge me) and the last, I had to come through for a friend in need.
I remember my first deposit was about N7,000 now we doing 7 digits!
How exactly has Piggybank helped you?
Piggybank has helped me become more financially independent. It has taught me how to save more and given me some sort of financial backup.
Has Piggybank actually helped you save?
Yes definitely! I remember my first deposit was about N7,000 now we doing 7 digits . . . (Eees Soo Sweeeeet!)
What do you find unique or different about the platform?
I love the APP! It’s easy to navigate and understand. My Favorite Feature is the Safelock option. I’m not sure if other platforms offer this option because well, I’ve never had to try the others. Good Job PiggyBank!
We really enjoyed reading Nora’s answers, we hope you do too!
