BEYOND ACCESS: GENERATING VALUE THROUGH DIGITAL INCLUSION ACROSS SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA

Agenda


BEYOND ACCESS: GENERATING VALUE THROUGH DIGITAL INCLUSION ACROSS SUB-SAHARAN AFRICA

Pillars for the digitization of economics are being put into place across Sub-Saharan Africa. Still very much a mobile-first region, the continent is positioned as a potential leader in financial inclusion innovations and initiatives, with several markets leading the way in establishing use cases for digital finance. But studies show that though populations are becoming more ‘financially included’, their lives are not necessarily improving.

The fintech industry is expected to increase Sub-Saharan Africa’s GSP by from $40 billion to $150 billion by 2022. In order to achieve this, focus will have to range across segments – from urban and rural areas, and MSMEs to migrants. From affordable housing to agriculture, an array of viable use cases is developing across the region. The proliferation of these use case innovations has spurred adoption.

These more efficient and targeted value propositions should help to drive a digital transformation of economies across Africa. And the resulting innovation in use cases could lead to an orders-of-magnitude increase in fintech’s addressable market. But the questions still remain: how can stakeholders determine which use case will be most viable and valuable for their consumer base? The partnership model for fintech is already complex; what will new alliances look like? How can progress and impact of these services be measured?

Our host market, Mozambique, has recently experienced a growth in its fintech sector, though its digital financial services ecosystem is still in the early stages of development. Given its low rates of financial inclusion, there is a massive potential for digital services, particularly as policy and regulation in the country is quickly evolving to promote fintech innovation and development.

Held in partnership with Financial Sector Deepening Mozambique, the seventh annual Mondato Summit Africa, the region’s executive digital finance thought leadership conference, will showcase new and exciting use cases across sectors, as well as address the need to innovate and collaborate in order to drive the next wave of financial inclusion to create value for end-users.
