Africa Fintech Festival is an annual event where key themes regarding innovation, reg-tech, consumer protection, changing business models, borderless operations, and non-traditional partnerships are debated and discussed by key industry players. Uganda was the host this year, and representatives from over 25 African nations examined the role of Fintechs in Africa’s digital economy.
Aramide Sadiq, our Digital Transformation Manager for Africa, participated as a speaker discussing the impact of technology in driving financial inclusion for women and the reduction of the gender gap. The panel explored both supply and demand side issues that limit women’s access to financial services, taking a deep dive into the role of Fintechs in Africa’s digital economy. We look forward to participating in the next edition of the Africa Fintech Festival!
