Hello to all my fellow revolutionairies!
I submit here for your viewing pleasure a short video clip a local video production company (Ultimate Cut) made for us to post on YouTube.
It is a shortened form of a much longer production of 25+ minutes.
What is unique about Mpendulo Savings is that we operate in mostly urban areas. We have found that our uptake is slower and SG are smaller…..at first. Once people in a given community figure out that we are not a scam, this changes. Most our second year groups grow by at least 20% and new group formation doubles, if not triples. The bigger the urban area, the longer we need a presence before we get a big bump in our new groups formation.
We also find that our members are very independently minded and will go their own way in terms of applying the methodology once they’ve graduated - despite all the advice we might give them to the contrary. Sometimes, however, the group reverts back to the original methodology after they’ve experimented with ‘their’ way.
Enjoy the show and let me know what you think of the video.
PS: Below is a picture of Hank, the Director of Ultimate Cut….this is how we roll in the Eastern Cape of South Africa!! And, Paul, Hank is the guy holding the snake!
