Meet the team
Like any business, our business is only as successful as our team and the Money Savvy team is growing at a rapid rate. We love to show off the awesome people who are responsible for keeping this business booming.
Our CEO Kathryn Main believes this expansion is perfectly aligned with the company’s mission to drive dramatic change that infuses children, from a very young age, with the problem-solving and critical thinking skills they need to make financial decisions now and in the future, using the analytical skills they learn through the program.
MSK is revolutionising the way financial knowledge is disseminated to younger generations of South Africans. It is questioning the traditional schooling system, which currently produces more followers than leaders.
At Money Savvy Kids we believe in creating opportunities not just for our youth but also for woman who want to run their own business. That is why we launched our MSK License model. If you are looking to step into a ready established business and have a passion for education and financial literacy freedom, then an MSK license is for you.

Evangelia arrived in SA with her family when she was a teenager. She studied Information Technology and worked as a software developer for 10 years before moving into sales and marketing.
Within software development she worked with finances and realized that even though financial literature is taught in universities there is very little to almost none in the school environment and that is where is all begins. Planting the seeds so it becomes part of our lifestyle vs something we just must do for mandatory purposes.
Evangelia believes that Financial literacy is a cornerstone of prosperity and security. It builds confidence and knowledge in the lives of individuals and the country and that’s why it’s so important to teach it to our kids!
