Lista launches ‘savings’ challenge to help Filipinos achieve financial goals

Following its launch last year, Lista, a free financial management app, just launched Ipon Challenge, which encourages Filipinos to set savings goals through their newest features: Savings and Sales Target.

The Savings feature allows the app user to track their savings, while the Sales Target feature will allow business owners to set a target profit for their business. Users will be able to customize their target timeline and amount using the feature. The new features are aimed at encouraging more Filipinos to maximize the tools within the app.

In launching the app, Lista aims to provide Filipinos with the tools to track the flow of money and help them with managing their finances in the process.
