Explain your idea in details:
Kouruhub is fin tech platform that sort to address the low saving ratios in Ghana and Africa as a whole more especially among low income earners.We do this by using peoples buying behaviors and patterns to mobile funds for saving. Kouruhub helps Low income earners to buy on wholesale price rather retail price, this would increase their disposable income which can be channel into savings. We takes orders of things they want to buy and buy on their behalf and delivered to them. Since we takes orders from many people we are able to buy in bulk and deal directly with manufacturers and distributors and buy on wholesale prices. In our platform ,they users pay for the product on retail price but Kouruhub buy the product at a wholesale price, so the difference between the retail price and the wholesale price becomes the saving image. In short the platform helps to reduce the cost of the product by eliminating the retail from the supply chain
