Hi, good that you are here! My name is Festus Edemeh, Chairman & CEO of Startbycrowd, a member of iBBank and Ei Group.
…Brief and Braved History of Startbycrowd and Otu-Uwa community fund
Via 1940s, Otu-Uwa community fund buru was found by Miss. Ogodi, a fund group which then and now are serving many communities in different parts of Africa to send and educate their childrens and relations in school. Also, serving and saving many individuals and businesses from financial difficulties. Up lifting business and life standard all over Africa by not just finance but through advice and informations on modern ways and ideas of doing todays business.
The biography of how Otu-Uwa community fund was founded, in the early 40s, there was this African rapper called akaoche that came out as a great fashion in which every woman at that time wished to have but there was a problem, a financial problem just as its today that only Miss. Ogodi was able to solved and continue to solve till date through her group. The cloth was too expensive and no money! Again, just like how many things we would like to do or have today are expensive and no money. Miss. Ogodi with her wisdom told her friends and relations, i quote, “lets form a fund group where by every market day, we will contribute money to buy 1 or 2 of this rapper for each or two members of the group, at the end of the year we will of cause all have one of this rapper (akaoche). Also, i will be the last to have mine” end of quote. its of this wonderful philosophy that Startbycrowd Crowdfunding was born!
