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!

What do you spend most of your income on?

I spend most of my income on financial commitments I have made towards causes I support and believe in. Although I dey sometimes try buy myself ties and shoes to remain a said boy.

Tbh, I no wan get had thy no moments for this life wey I dey.

How exactly has Piggybank helped you?

Piggybank has actually helped me pay my house rent twice in this city that I’m in currently. Like imagine me paying house rent for apartment without collecting one kobo from anybody. It made me feel elated and free. I don’t know if anyone can relate but it was beautiful.

Has Piggybank actually helped you save?

Actually, yes piggybank has helped me save funds I don’t need especially through the direct debit feature.

What do you find unique or different about the platform?

It’s easy to navigate, although I still think the interface is too busy with many words, pictographs and charts might help. Swift turnaround time and good customer service are features I like about you, lil miss piggy.
