According to data provided by the World Bank, 2 billion people worldwide don’t have access to formal financial services. Seventy three percent (73%) of which come from African countries and part of Asia. Approximately 80 per cent of the population (1.2 billion) lack access to formal financial services while 200 million formal and informal small and medium enterprises in developing economies are either unserved or underserved in regards to their financing needs.

In Africa, mobile penetration stands at 60 percent  while smartphone penetration is expected to reach 57 percent by 2020. This is largely attributed to the increase in availability and affordability of mobile devices. More people have access to mobile devices compared to formal financial services. To entrepreneurs and fintech startups, this provides an immense opportunity to increase financial inclusion and provide financial services to the majority of the unbanked population in developing countries.

‘’Africa still has the largest unserved market in regards to access to basic financial services despite the increased interest within the Fintech space.  Currently, there are over 300 active fintech startups in Africa with South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya leading the pack.
