SL FinTech Challenge 2017: Market Engagement Session
The Sierra Leone FinTech Challange 2017 in partnership with the SL FinTech association is organizing a Market Enagement Session with a critical use-case for fragile markets- Conditional & Unconditional Cash Transers.
The event is scheduled on:
JULY 6, 2017
2:00 PM- 3:30 PM
ACDI/VOCA OFFICE at HILL STATION, OFF
FinTechs and partner financial institutions will hear from Cash Transfer Working Group, a sub-set of the Food Security Sector using cash to address food seurity needs in Sierra Leone. In Sierra Leone, over 3.5 million people are food insecure, without access to a sufficient amount of safe and nutritious food. This is also the volume of people that the Cash Transfer Groups face significant challenges in delivery cash-assistance to.
The distribution will provide valuable insights to the FinTechs and overall financial inclusion industry on designing and piloting tech-based solutions for reaching the vulnerable households in cost-effective, timely, and convenient ways which can also result in greater financial inclusion.
