Plaguing unbankable communities — in addition to not having access banking services — is not having access to professional financial advice. South Africa’s Riovic, a virtual financial advice service, wants to change this.
Based in Johannesburg, Riovic wants to bring virtual financial advice to every single person in South Africa, by putting a financial advisor in your pocket 24/7.
“It puts your bank branch in your pocket,” quips twenty-three year old Naledi Mokoena (pictured above), the founder of Riovic. Having studied BCom Financial Management at the University of Pretoria, Mokoena is focusing on a field that she understands all too well. But above all, she believes that technology should be leveraged to change ecosystems for good.
