The Application system to be developed aims to teach kids aged between 7-14years the value of money,benefits of saving,good and bad credit through a mobile application which will be linked to a local Bank;or with another option of parents promising to just give them money in a traditional way, for starters. Through this exercise ,kids will get an opportunity to interact with their parents on a daily basis about money.The mobile application will have parents list chores on the application,with kids completing tasks and collecting the money into their Thebe Trunk Accounts.
