Hii ni platform yetu maalum inayowezesha vikundi kujiendesha kidijitali kwa kuwapa wana kikundi wote uwezo wa kuona muenendo wa akauti yao (in real time) kupitia simu zao za mikononi bila hitaji la kwenda benki kuomba statementi. Hili linaisaidia sana katika kuweka uwazi katika uendeshaji wa kikundi na hivyo kuongeza uwajibikaji na kupunguza migongano isiyo na lazima. Kila muamala utakaopita kwenye akaunti ya kikundi utaendana na meseji (notification) kwa wanavikundi wote. Hii pia itahusisha namna bora ya kuruhusu miamala kidijitali bila hitaji ya kukutana mara kwa mara. Mambo yote kiganjani” alisema.

Vingi vikiwa ni vya kina mama na wajasiliamari wanawake.


“Benki pia imeshatoa mikopo ya zaidi ya shilingi bilioni tatu (3bn) kwa wajasiliamari wadogo wadogo zaidi ya elfu mbili nchi nzima. Hili ni kundi limalohusisha wafanyabiashara wadogo wakubwa kuanzia  mama Lishe mpaka wamiliki wa viwanda vidogo vya uzalishaji vyakula vya mifugo. Tunaamini kuwa hili ni kundi muhimu sana kwa uchumi wa nchi yetu kwani ndio kundi linaloajiri watu wengi zaidi nchini. Tutaendelea kuwa nanyi Bega kwa bega ili kwa pamoja tufikie malengo tuliyojiwekea” alisema.


Akitoa nasaha zake kwa vikundi vya uwekezaji nchini, Bi.Kitoka aliwaasa wanavikundi hao kuongeza juhudi na kuzingatia  Mshikamano, ubunifu,  weledi na uwazi kwenye masuala ya Fedha na Uwekezaji.
