Who are we?
Back to basics!
Koree is pronounced “cowrie”. The cowrie, named “Monetaria moneta” or “Cypraea moneta” is a species of shell from the Cypraeidae Specie (the “porcelains”). Cowries are well-known, especially in Africa and the Indian Ocean, where they were the most widely-used shell money.
In the middle of the 19th century, cowries could even be exchanged for gold in Mali, in Timbuktu. That is why we gave our logo its golden color.
It is clear that the cowrie is a symbol of power and wealth. We go back to our roots by paying with Koree in the 21st century!
The idea of the Koree mobile application originated in Abidjan in 2018, at the checkout of a bakery. Facing the lack of spare change in the cash register, the absence of a physical or digital loyalty card and the disarray of the cashier, we felt something needed to be done. So we did it!
We are building the 1-stop rewards application in French-speaking Africa! We created a simple, secure, 100% digital and practical solution so that shoppers can enjoy the best offers and get incentives on their shopping.
With Koree there are no coincidences!
We win or we win!It is time we benefit from our hard-earned money, quickly!
We often face a shortage of spare change when paying in stores and it makes our payment experience very frustrating.
At Koree, we are convinced that technology can solve the spare change shortage!
We are against small papers with handwritten figures, against candies given at checkout to avoid giving us back our change. Koree is digitizing small change!
