About This CourseBeginner

The world’s next one billion middle-class consumers are coming online in Africa. Mobile money is enabling Africa’s transformation to a digital economy through the delivery of affordable financial services. Africa has been a global leader in innovating payment technologies and has important lessons for fintech practitioners.

  • Over 85% of people have a mobile phone
  • Only 20% have access to financial services
  • $4 trillion consumer and business spending
  • $528 billion credit gap for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs)
