Fintech in Africa is rapidly evolving. Today, there are hundreds of fintech startups serving the 444 million unique mobile subscribers in Sub-Saharan Africa. How has the sector changed in recent years?

M-Pesa in Kenya was a pioneer in African fintech, and drove a generation of startups focused on mobile money and mobile payments. Since then, the fintech sector has blossomed to include insurance, credit scoring, data analytics and more, offering insights and lessons to fintech innovators around the world.

We re excited about the progress we have seen in payments, but at Village Capital, we re even more interested in the next generation of fintech startups.

Startups are now building on top of the payments infrastructure to serve a population that is living longer and entering the middle class. They are also reimagining the way Africans finance farms and small businesses. Beyond Payments: The Next Generation Of Fintech Startups In Sub-Saharan Africa will cover the fintech sub-sectors and companies to watch in Sub-Saharan Africa.
