"Penny Plotters" partners us with Digi to create an e-wallet that will become synonymous with Malaysian culture, for instance, like Colgate to toothpaste. Our project combines an e-wallet with a financial planner that learns the users spending patterns and records them automatically, to customize a financial budget that encourages savings.
There is a gap in financial literacy among Malaysian youth. An "avocado toast" culture has developed where Generation Y spends recklessly and has little money left over for savings or investments. Penny Plotters aims to encourage budgeting and savings to improve the financial situation of youths in Malaysia, and also the general masses.
The estimated amount of funding will be RM20,000 to develop this project, however as we are partnered with Digi, we hope to gain access to their development teams and resources. The spending will go into development of a feature that automatically records transactions from the e-wallet, an interactive budgeting interface, along with automated analysis tools to customize a financial plan for each user.
