The #1MilliChallenge

#1MilliChallenge is an investment campaign introduced in the Kenyan market by Abojani in 2020 aimed at helping investors in the community save and invest consistently in money market funds, SACCOs, and treasury bonds till they hit at least Ksh 1m and with returns above the inflation.

It helps professionals and entrepreneurs in our community to learn by DOING which we believe is the best way to know to get ahead in investing. Once one has been able to do this consistently by themselves, the possibilities are limitless.

The challenge brings to convergence, Abojani pillars of personal finance which are

  1. The MINDSET(deciding to set aside part of your income consistently and doing with a connection to a personal goal)

  2. The SKILLSET(knowing and choosing investment vehicles that are aligned to your personal goals and with your risk appetite)

  3. Toolset- Actually opening investment and getting started & having Abojani team as your accountability partner.

Why #1Milli?

Well, it gets interesting when one hits the blessed two comma number. In one shareholder meeting, Warren Buffet was heard doing mic check, “1 million, 2 million, 3 million”

Being productive in our investment journey will help us embrace the good habits that can help us get ahead in a very practical way and open doors to many possibilities. After achieving that goal, investors can then LevelUP to #2Milli, #5Milli, #10Milli, etc.

In 2020, 38 members were able to achieve the #1Milli challenge.
