dfcu Bank Battle for Cash Season 2

As part of several efforts to promote a savings culture in Uganda, dfcu Bank in partnership with NTV Uganda and Price Waterhouse Coopers (PwC) introduced the dfcu Investment Clubs program in 2007 providing a conducive platform to foster group savings. The dfcu Bank program has since grown with over 10,000 Investment Clubs that cut across all segments including students, the professionals, women, youths holding a savings turnover of over UGX 400 billion. The campaign, which runs as a TV show competition dubbed ‘Battle for Cash’ was launched in 2017 and Just like season 1, Season 2 this year will be a two prolonged campaign.

  • The first phase will focus on the call for entries
  • The second will be a reality show that will see 20 clubs compete for the 1st cash prize of UGX. 30 million in comparison to UGX. 20 million that they competed for in 2017.
  • The call for entries will run from 26th June 2018 – 24th August 2018
  • The Reality show will start airing on 6th September to 29th November and will have 13 fast-paced episodes
What is different this year
  • This year’s season will have more winners, there will be more prizes up for grabs, the tasks that will be done following the selection of the top 20 clubs will be more challenging and the audience/public will be able to vote for their favourite Investment Club from the stat of the show to stay in the competition.
  • To create hype and awareness just like we did last year, during phase 1 of the campaign, at a regional level, we will have regional draws that will be tied to Financial literacy sessions held in the 6 regions (Northern, Eastern, Western, Central, Metro 1, Metro 2 and Greater Kampala) however this year, we will have more winners.
