African startups invited to apply for Inclusive Fintech 50 competition

The Inclusive Fintech 50 is an initiative of the MetLife Foundation and Visa, alongside global non-profit Accion and IFC, and will recognise the top 50 early-stage fintechs contributing to financial inclusion around the globe.

It will culminate in a list of the most impactful, emerging fintechs that demonstrate the power of financial technology to expand access, usage and quality of financial services in advanced and emerging markets.

“The migration to digital financial services improves the lives of individuals, supports stronger businesses and spurs economic progress and prosperity. Fintech companies are driving innovation, especially as it relates to un-served and underserved populations,” said Marianne Mwaniki, global head of social impact at Visa.
