The name ‘Zonotho’ came from the merging of two words. The first word is the Kiswahili word “mwanzo” meaning “the beginning”, and the second is the the Zulu/Ndebele word “umnotho” meaning “wealth”. The sole purpose of Zonotho is to help people make better financial decisions. Finance products can be difficult to understand but we bridge the gap by releasing content that touches on financial concepts in a way that is understandable and in so doing, “Make Finance simple”.
