Explore Possibilities

How does a Pan African brand position itself as a partner for growth? How does a brand consumed by everyday Africans inspire and be inspired by the people they serve? Valora was tasked by the executives of the organisation to re-invigorate the brand and gear it for change as the organisation continues with its expansion strategy. The exploratory work entailed a thorough brand audit of the business, brand metrics and contextual interaction with the brand in its lived environments. Valora benchmarked Cassava Fintech against category competitors in Africa and globally. Our aim was to identify market strengths and opportunities to leverage for the brand to achieve distinction, relevance and differentiation.

Shape Tomorrow

A future fit strategy, supported by design and a brand activation toolkit, was developed. The strategy directed the organisation to a new purpose. It emphasised a mind shift from seeing the organisation’s primary market as ‘previously excluded’ to identifying them as ‘Overcomers/Strivers’ who form the economic backbone of Africa. Through Valora’s strategic advisory and design intervention, Cassava Fintech is ready to lead the category and integrate their brand into communities across the continent in a meaningful way.
