Save a part of your income, at least 10% for the rainy day.
What is Stash?
Stash is a user friendly savings application that encourages you to save daily, weekly and monthly for different purpose and period. Stash means to keep or pile-up for safekeeping. Stash is your digital "esusu", "ajo", "adashe", "asusu", "piggybank" platform.
Why should I save?
Stash your idle cash. Save little by little. Save for the rainy day. Little drops of water makes a mighty ocean. That N200, that N500, that N 1,000, just stash it! You will be shocked at what it would amount to in 3-6months. Save a part of your income, at least 10% for the rainy day.
This is made possible through a recurring debit passed into your bank account daily, weekly and monthly depending on your plan.
Users can also save without a stereotyped plan. This plan is not part of the daily, weekly or monthly plan. It is called Casual Savings. You save as you get funds for a specified period.
The minimum savings period is 2 months(60 days). You can as well do for 3,4,6,9 ,12months or more as you please. Maximum tenor is 2 years.
Optional Interest Payment
Interest payment is 6% per annum on your savings. By default, your interest button is activated but you can choose to switch off the interest button if you do not want interest due to personal or religious beliefs.
Minimum Savings Amount
- N70 and above for daily plan
- N500 and above for weekly plan
- N2000 and above for monthly plan
- N5,000 is the minimum for Casual Savings. Casual Savings does not have a recurring plan. It is save as you go!
To activate your plan, sign up and follow the instructions. You can link your bank account to Stash by either link your existing debit card or paying directly from your bank. Successful registration cost N100.
Registration is quite different from activating the plans. Once you register successfully, the system debits you according to the plan you have chosen. You do not need to keep entering your details for any new plans.This is a one-off process.

Early Withdrawal Charge
- 5% of principal sum
- Loss of all accrued interest
Note: In order to encourage you to stick to your initial plan, we charge you 5% of your principal savings for withdrawing before the maturity. You also lose the entire interest in the savings. This is a penal charge deductible from your saved amount. The remaining sum will be credited to your account.
We wouldn't want to be charged, would you? Well, neither do we. So don't make us charge you. Just wait till the end of the tenor or till the target contribution is saved. Don't worry, you will be alright.

- No penal charges
- Accrued interest is intact

You can access 33.3%( i.e one third) of your principal savings. This sum will be credited to your account at no cost. No charges. This will be deducted from your total savings when it eventually matures.
You can pause your savings and continue later.
