We know you’re wondering, what is REACH?
REΛCH is an app that helps individuals and people in groups to set, track, and achieve their financial goals. REACH reminds us of Susu and other traditional savings schemes, except this time, it’s digital. The app lets you save for your biggest moments in life (weddings, holidays, brand new car, rent – you name it!) as an individual or with family, friends and other groups with the same goal as you. It’s accessible to anyone with a Nigerian bank account.
So, how does REACH work?
Users can set, track, and achieve their financial goals on the REACH app. Simply tell REACH how much you need to save, and by when the amount should be complete, and the app will generate the daily, weekly or monthly amount that needs to be deducted for you to reach your goal by the specified time. In addition to that, you can invite friends to join your savings goals and take advantage of the in-app messaging service, that allows you all to gist privately about your progress. Users can also cancel their savings plans at any time and a full transfer of funds will be made, without any financial penalties.
How much will all this cost me?
Absolutely nothing! There are no costs applicable to savers as REACH generates its revenue through lead generation and by connecting vendors with customers. We are not here to chop your
Ok, REACH sounds great so far…is that all?
Well, in addition to saving personally, if you choose to join the hundreds of people who have been saving since July 2016, you can also make considerable savings on purchases made via REACH Partners.

REACH launches its 100-day challenge today. Users who save at least ₦100 for the next 100 days will enjoy a 5% bonus on all that’s been saved up by March 24 (100 days from today).
