Theme:Mobile Money in Africa – Its genesis, growth and Impact


Mobile money has seemingly become part of ordinary life in Africa. According to statistics, as of the end of 2017, the number of mobile payment accounts in sub-Saharan Africa has reached 338 million, which indicates its popularity. The advent of the mobile payment era has transformed daily life for many Africans. In March 2007, M-PESA was launched in Kenya. After more than ten years of development, its number of users has exceeded 30 million, and it has expanded from Kenya, in the East African region, to more than ten countries worldwide such as Egypt, India and Romania. Our guest speaker will share the origin, development and influence of mobile payment in Africa.
