Fintech is fast proving to be one of the most crucial tools for advancing financial inclusion globally and particularly on the African continent. A lot of the African population remains unbanked, and as a result, in the past few years, there has been a flurry of activity in the fintech space in Africa, to deliver easy-to use, affordable and accessible financial services to the African population using technology.
In this episode, Brenda has a conversation on digital financial services as a means of enhancing financial inclusion on the African continent with Stone Atwine, the Co-Founder of Eversend.

Stone discusses how he got the founding idea for Eversend and the challenges Eversend has faced in its quest to provide affordable and accessible digital financial services on the continent. Stone also discusses his experience with access to funding as a black founder of an African startup and how blockchain is impacting Eversend’s business.
