ePaymentsAfrique

would be Subsaharan Africa's largest conference on digital payment acceptance and the underserved.

The ePayments Ecosystem Conference will feature expert speakers, with presentations and case studies, over 10 sessions on a wide range of topics related to Financial Inclusion and Social Impact.

The informal sector is the main source of employment in SSA Africa, accounting for around 85.8 per cent of total employment. In other words, the informal economy in Africa is not a marginal phenomenon, but rather the space in which most fintechs will find the impetus to scale

With less than a quarter of adults having a bank account, the unbanked segment offers a huge opportunity for payment service providers who can garner and grow adoption through innovative payment services. The winning fintechs have made significant progress due to strong growth in the mobile money space. This more than anything is improving financial inclusion by the simple provision of basic financial services to the unbanked segment in a way that reduces friction

Who

will attend

Players (regulators, fintech companies, VCs, banks, Mobile Money platforms, business schools) from the English-speaking ecosystem will meet with players from the French-speaking ecosystem.
