About MFC Africa

The importance of MFC in Africa

Mobile financial services are the great differentiator for Africa’s relatively large numbers of unbanked and poorly connected populations. Having evolved into a tool for wider economic inclusion and healthier living and working lives, AfricaCom supports this industry’s development through a dedicated Mobile Finance and Commerce conference.

Highlights include:

  • Building an interconnected and transparent financial ecosystem
  • Leapfrogging Africa’s electricity grid with mobile magic
  • How is Fintech changing the landscape of mobile finance?


Why attend?

The two day conference brings attendees together to understand how the ecosystem of digitally enabled financial services can grow sustainably and lead to greater financial inclusion of underserved populations and ultimately economic growth. 

Attendees will understand how to create scale and sustainability for their products and services through the mobile channel and plug into the ecosystem of platforms shaping the consumer and business digital landscape.
