The minimum number of your stokvel members required on the Nala Club Account is three.
The core foundation of all Stokvel Clubs which members rely on is TRUST. In most cases, members likely know each other on a personal level (family, friends or colleagues). If you choose to join a Stokvel Club found on our app where you do not personally know any of the members; we encourage you to firstly do a detailed research before committing. Joining a Stokvel Club that you do not know the members of is a high risk.
Our platform is compatible with any tablet, internet browser enabled phone and smartphone device running either Android 4.2 (upwards) or iOS 8.0 (upwards)
For Club Members that do not have a compatible device, the executives of a Club can manage such member activities as payments (on behalf) and claims (on behalf). For every activity executed by the executives on a member’s behalf, StokFella will notify all members via email and SMS notifications.
However, it is highly recommended that the members take necessary steps by all possible means to view their profile as often as possible when the opportunity arises. At best case, acquire a compatible device soonest.

All Card and Retail Deposit payments reflect instantly on your Stokvel’s Club account, as soon as you successfully complete the transaction. Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) may take 2-3 working days before it reflects on your Stokvel’s Club account.
After your Stokvel Club’s executives have approved your claim, one working day is given to all your members to lay an objection to the claim. If no objection is made, StokFella will do an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) to your nominated bank account the following working day. How long it takes for those funds to reflect on your bank account? It will depend on the processing by your bank of choice.

It is important you do not share your secret PIN code with anyone (including your fellow stokvel members and executives).
