Can you please introduce yourself?
My name is Eze Emmanuel Chukwudi. I am the Brand, Communications and Marketing Lead, for Advansio
What is your take on Fintech in Africa? Is it improving or deteriorating?
Fintech is transforming the financial landscape in Africa, making access to financial services and products available to the banked and unbanked within urban and remotely rural communities, where conventional banks are not available.
Fintech is definitely improving, as fintech firms keep re-inventing and evolving their solutions to meet the needs of the African market.
What is the purpose of Fintech for Growth?
At Advansio we are committed to powering sustainable financial access in Africa and being a leading player within the fintech space, we have been able to drive easy access to financial services to the banked and the unbanked within Nigeria and Africa, but we realize that there’s still a lot more work to be done within the space and that is why we birthed this event.
The event is geared toward bringing successful fintech leaders, and budding and bright minds, to discuss, encourage, and bridge the gap between where fintech is currently and where it should be.
