The purpose of Gimi is for children to learn how to manage money. In order to learn, you need to practice, preferably together with your parents. In the Gimi app, children can, for example, create savings goals, carry out chores and do lessons on the topic of personal finance, while parents can, for example, schedule weekly or monthly allowance, hand out chores and get tips on educational activities to do with their children. Therefore, parents and children need to have their own user accounts in the app, and it is necessary to connect their accounts with each other.
