Traditional rotational savings clubs (i.e. susus, chitfunds, kittys, tandas, etc.) all have one thing in common: a strong community component. The bedrock of this informal savings mechanism is a deep sense of community rooted in the mindset of "we are all in this together".
When building the Esusu app we knew we needed to find a way to cultivate that same sense of community and togetherness. Enter: Esusu Chat. This core feature allows a user to communicate with any Esusu groups they are a part of, or directly message specific members of their group. This feature can be accessed through the "Messages" icon on the bottom right. See the screenshots below for more details:
