Kwara, a digital banking fintech startup, has partnered with Workpay to provide human resource management and payroll processing solutions to Kenya’s Savings and Credit Co-operative Societies (SACCOs).
As a compliment to Kwara’s products, including as Core Banking, Online and Mobile Banking, and Open API service, the partnership will enable SACCOs to automate their Human Resource (HR) processes.
SACCOs will be able to process payroll seamlessly into SACCO accounts and will have access to an HR module for effective staff management as a result of the partnership.
This will make it easier for them to manage HR functions for their personnel, such as time and attendance, leave management, payroll processing, compliance, and performance management.
Cynthia Wandia, Co-founder and CEO, Kwara, says: “We are constantly seeking to offer SACCOs a complete package to run their operations. Our partnership with Workpay is in line with our ambition to build the infrastructure that connects SACCOs and their members to existing infrastructure. We are excited for this next step in getting SACCOs a fully integrated, digital operating system.”
Paul Kimani, Co-founder and CEO, Workpay, says, “Our goal is to aid African SMEs in their growth by providing them with tools that bring efficiency in their people operations. Saccos are important financial institutions to millions of people in Africa and what Kwara is doing with them resonates with our mission at Workpay.”
