Africa’s fintech sector is open for business, with much ground to cover. In many African nations, 90% of transactions are still cash-based, signalling a vast untapped market.

Data from McKinsey indicates a potential surge in Africa’s financial-services market, with revenues likely reaching $230b by 2025.

With nimble fintech players embracing digital transformation, this expanding market presents a fertile ground for innovation and disruption.

Fintech companies in Africa are riding the wave of technological advancements and socio-economic changes. The rise in smartphone usage, more affordable internet, broader network reach, and a youthful, expanding urban population drive fintech adoption.

The COVID-19 pandemic further accelerated digitalisation trends. This has created a paradigm shift in consumer behaviour, presenting fintech startups with unique opportunities to meet evolving demands.
