Jamii guide

Idir groups (community funeral fund groups)

Features that you can use

If you are an IDIR group, you can use Jamiipay to register the group contributions, more specifically.

A general guide on how to use Jamiipay in meetings, can be found on https://jamii.guide/courses/how-to-use-jamiipay-in-meetings/ . The guide is based on a meeting in a VSLA group, but the main difference is, that if you are a SHG or SILC, you will not register savings in shares, but rather in amount.

How to get started

When getting started in using Jamiipay, there are 2 things to be aware of: Group type and Baseline (see below). A general guide to get started can be found under “How to get started

1. Select group type “SHG”

When you create the group, you can currently choose between 3 group types;
VSLA, SILC or SHG, as seen from the below screens. This will mean, that if you choose SHG or SILC, the savings you will be able to register savings in amount. If you choose VSLA, you will be able to register savings in shares.
