Redefining Mobile Financial Services in Africa

Mobile Financial Services (MFS) in Africa have traditionally targeted unbanked or underbanked populations at the base of the pyramid. From P2P transfers to airtime top-up and mobile bill payment, these products aimed to create more affordable and convenient financial services for those with a mobile phone, but limited access to formal financial institutions

While “first generation” mobile money services are still strong and growing, we are also witnessing a new wave of MFS in many African countries. Increasingly, the middle class is expanding and with it a strong demand for mobile payment and m-commerce applications from both merchants and consumers. On the other side of the value chain, service providers are eager to expand into new areas of MFS in order to create new revenue streams

From MNOs and financial institutions, to third-party technology providers, MFS stakeholders in these economies must re-evaluate how they can adapt to these shifting trends and ensure that they stay relevant. As African markets become increasingly diverse, how can MFS offerings similarly diversify to succeed over the long run?

Created by Industry Experts

Mondato Summits were born as a response to client and industry concerns that current events fail to truly propel industry players to move MFS forward. At existing events, service providers often struggle to connect with the right contacts along the value chain and start-ups find it difficult to access influential C-level players.

Mondato Summits were created to offer clarity amid a chaotic and constantly changing industry. From defining a strong value proposition and forging strategic partnerships to ensuring data privacy and secure authentication, what are the factors must be taken into consideration when designing and implementing successful MFS solutions? Mondato Summits deal directly with these key issues, as the content has been handcrafted by specialized MFS experts to meet the needs of MFS professionals.
