Digital and financial solutions to bridge the digital divide

We are accelerating digital and financial inclusion by connecting the unconnected, we seek to bridge the digital divide through our CHASE framework addressing society’s barriers to internet and mobile adoption. We actively address key barriers such as coverage, handsets, affordability, service bundling, education and ease of access.

Technology has provided the opportunity to leapfrog traditional financial service solutions. This rapidly growing industry has accelerated financial inclusion, which is a potent enabler of socio-economic development which empowers the most vulnerable in society.

We are building a digital ecosystem centred around advanced messaging, local language content, expanding communities and unlocking opportunities for greater financial inclusion.
