How Tunzaa Is Using Technology To Rewire The Financial Reality Of Africans


A significant proportion of Africans earn average or below-average income and are unable to afford products they want or maintain proper financial habits based on their earnings.

Inspired by his inability to afford the latest products growing up, Ng’winula Kingamkono founded Tunzaa, a fintech product to improve the financial habit of everyday Africans via gamification with a marketplace for goods and services.

The marketplace for goods and services connects businesses with a network of buyers and enables buyers achieve their plans and goals by facilitating installment payments at the user’s pace directly from their mobile money wallets.

Ng’winula reinforces his confidence in the product by personally funding Tunzaa, which is currently a bootstrapped product. By utilizing technology to reinforce positive saving habits, Ng’winula believes that Tunzaa can change the financial reality of many Africans, starting from Tanzania.
