AFI Inclusive Fintech Showcase

The AFI Inclusive Fintech Showcase offers a platform for auspicious Fintech (Financial Technology) and Regtech (Regulatory Technology) innovators that are supposed to enhance access and the quality of formal financial services for the people who have below-average/low income in emerging markets and developing countries.

If you are a financial technology or regulatory technology innovator and if your technology helps the population with below-average/low income then AFI needs you to be a part of its Showcase. AFI (Alliance for Financial Inclusion) is the chief organization that has a significant hold on financial inclusion policy and regulation that enables policymakers to gain access and usage of quality financial services to those who are supplied with insufficient services.

The FinTech Showcase winner in 2020, Hildaa Mora (Pezesha Founder and CEO) remarks, “I hope that my participation and winning will encourage more young women to participate in the next showcase and also to believe that it’s possible to pitch among many, many other solutions and still come out a winner. I’m really grateful for this particular opportunity, which I hope will drive a lot of inspiration among young people out there across Africa.
