MetEnnKoste is the first “friendsfunding” platform founded by two young and dynamic Mauritians entrepreneurs, Marie Christine Lasplaces and Hishaam Ibrahim. This platform helps its clients bring together their friends and family so that they can all contribute to a common expense or a gift.
“MetEnnKoste does not aim to grow a crowd of faceless clients but rather serve an army of friends”, adds Marie. The term “friendsfunding” captures the exact essence of MetEnnKoste, that is a group of friends coming together to give one of their own his dream gift. It also expresses the direct engagement the platform has with its clients.
“The reason why we chose MetEnnKoste as a name for our business is because it sums up pretty well who we are and what we aim to do. The term ‘Met enn koste’ is a common phrase in kreol used to describe this process of putting money together to afford something. This is literally what our business is about”, says Marie.
How does it work? Easy, peasy, just follow the steps:
Go on metennkoste.com and create your account
Create a money pot by giving details on why you are creating one, how much money you aim to raise, the minimum contribution required to participate and the end date of the money pot. This will then be sent to the team for approval
Once your money pot is approved and online, you can share the link to your money pot to all your contacts via social media, mail or messaging systems.
All your invitees can click on the link to your money pot and contribute to it via Juice, Internet Banking or Card payments, which is coming real soon.
At the end of your money pot, that is when the target sum is collected or the end date is reached, you can ask for a bank transfer.
