About Zazu

Zazu is a fintech start-up that provides mobile payment services and financial education courses to the Zambian market.

Our vision is to create the most helpful digital money account, ever. An account that makes it easy to understand where and how your money is going, that automatically categorizes spending and gives you the data you need to make informed decisions.

Along the way, we are partnering with government departments and NGOs to bring financial education to urban and rural communities in Zambia by way of financial literacy courses that can be taken on even the most basic mobile phone.

We’re not selling stuff that people don’t need, we believe we are and will continue to improve the outlook and quality of life for tens of thousands of people in Zambia and beyond, by empowering them with the knowledge and tools to make better financial decisions.
