Osper is a mobile banking service that gives children as young as eight a safe way to learn to save by doing. The young person gets a debit card that their parent tops up weekly or monthly with their budget. The card can be used in shops, at cash machines and online. Both parent and child get an app that allows them to track spending on the card together. The experience helps young people to learn in the way that’s most natural – by doing. It changes the way that the kids and parents talk about money too. Osper wants to make family budgeting a shared experience – one that’s trusting and educational, and provides the life lessons that so many adults never had when they were young.
