Yolanda Sosa

MICHAEL LEIFER

Is there a way to undo the lack of funding for financial inclusion startups from this network and the VC community as it seems to be bottle necking the innovation vision of this group?At www.mypocket.io, we have 51K active users and over €100M in transfers between Europe and Africa, but have not been embraced by the social impact world for some reason. We’re currently raising our series A round.Our documents can be found here: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/10SlFx07AYU7eh6gqaHilQycHMzARWIfg?usp=sharingMichael Leifer, CMO michael@mypocket.io

In India , NGO promted self-help groups working hard to strengthen the rural women through their financial inclusion policies. But, the present pandemic is a bottleneck to reach the vulnerable section of the society. what will be the solutions to face such circumstances in coming days?

Good knowing all the participating organizaions. Including the hosts BBC Click event, which I used to view sometime in 2013-2015.

Great points. When I worked in the field, network connectivity was a big barrier even in places covered by telco towers. During COVID-19 to make edutainment content available, UN personnel spent 3 hours per tablet (100+ tablets) to download 1 simple app in tablets. This because the devices were not considered suitable for Google PlayStores requirements (taking device ownership), and coordination across partners was difficult in apps deployment and device management. Let me avoid talking of USSD services!Plus, mobile networks were often unreliable and not really promoting innovation. To reach more people, digital rails should be re-though or be opened up

Panelists, I’m enjoying your contributions. in the next few minutes I’ll ask each of you for some closing remarks as a way to round up after a few more questions.
PAPU-Nathan Mkandawire
01:39:28
So just to comment on the use of the postal system in africa, I wish to say that the problem is that there hasn't been a lot of investment in digital financial inclusion in the sector but suffice to say that the thre is a facility called Financial Inclusion Technical Assistance Facility being managed by the Universal Postal Union which postal entities can benefit from. More information can be obtained from the International Bureau of the Universal Postal Union.
