According to Sassa, they were working with two spaza shop groups, and they had to meet certain requirements to ensure that they had legal South Africans who could take part in the spaza shop initiative so that compliance with the financial system requirements would not be a problem. 

According to the Agency, the main goal of partnering with spaza shops is to make it easier for recipients of social grants to receive payments locally.
