  • Hi Maya,

    Do you have any thoughts on how stokvels can go about shifting the incentive from short term investing to long term investing? how do we convince low-income workers that they stand to gain more from investing for the future?

It is a lot about education – I have videos on my website about the power of compounding. You are welcome to use those. I also find for some investors they prefer tangible investments like cattle or property. Maybe check out //
