Zimele Savings Plan

The Zimele Savings Plan allows you to grow your savings in a flexible and convenient setting, at your own pace.

You can save any amount starting from Ksh.100, at any frequency, and earn interest at 9.56% per year on all your deposits. Withdrawals are timely with a choice of M-Pesa or bank.

The Zimele Savings Plan, is a money market fund in the Zimele Unit Trust Scheme, which is licensed and regulated by the Capital Markets Authority (CMA) as a collective investment scheme.

Once you open your Zimele Savings Plan account, you can make deposits via M-Pesa or Bank channels.

Funds are pooled and collectively invested in safe, interest-bearing assets such as Treasury bills, Treasury bonds and bank deposits. Returns are in the form of interest income, which is credited to members’ accounts after deducting fees and taxes.
