Cenfri’s Report on Payment systems in sub-Saharan Africa

 

Cenfri’s latest research explores the state of national and regional payment systems in sub-Saharan Africa and offers excellent insights into the region’s development in the payment space.  With a large population still financially excluded and not in the formal financial sector, how can the region play catch-up with the rest of the world and even leapfrog?

The study has identified three cross-cutting themes that are crucial to the development of payment systems at a national and regional level:

• Scale
• Fit-for-purpose payment system infrastructure
• The need for regulation that mitigates risk while it promotes innovation

 

This is a good read for all practitioners in the region!  Read more here >>
