” One of the smartest things that you can ever do for yourself is to develop the habit of saving part of your salary, every single paycheck. Individuals, families and even societies are stable and prosperous to the degree to which they have high savings rates. Savings today are what guarantee the security and the possibilities of tomorrow.”
But saving is not exactly an easy habit to cultivate especially considering our economic realities in Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
The World Bank rates Nigeria as one of the countries with poorest saving culture (16%) even below Liberia. That figure is not a surprise considering the financial pressure that is on an average Nigerian. Countless bills to be paid on limited income. Though I believe Saving is a cultural practice for a Nigerian but the economic hardship might have stripped us of. I remember when growing up, mothers gave their kids money and expect them to at least save a portion of it. Mothers will ask you days later how much you saved from the sum she gave you days ago.
The word ‘Kolo’ is a Yoruba word which refers to a saving box. Back in the days, parents tried to teach their young children to save by making or buying them a Kolo. it is from this root that KoloPay picked her name.
