A uniquely integrated digital transactions ecosystem including Mobile Money, Digital Banking, Payment Services, Social Payments and International Remittances. Through our Fintech services, we have been able to drive financial inclusion from under 10% to 70-80% in some of our markets, and helped to create thousands of new job and business opportunities for young entrepreneurs.
Cassava has developed an integrated social payments platform that leverages our pan-African payments infrastructure and combines social chat and mobile money payments in a single app. Through the super app, customers are able to chat (text, voice and video) with their friends and relatives, send money, and pay for virtually anything, on the fly. Social payments are expected to drive the next wave of mobile growth in Africa.
We offer innovative and inclusive mobile micro-insurance solutions covering Funeral, Auto, Education and Health. With a population of over a billion in Africa and less than 10% insured, the concept of insurance is still under-developed, with untapped opportunities in micro-insurance. Our solutions are offered through a non-traditional, innovative model, allowing us to bring down insurance premiums to as low as 50 cents per month, taking advantage of strategic partnerships with MNO’s and mobile wallet providers.
We provide real time platforms to connect users to their nearest service provider, saving them time and money through increased efficiencies. As trends around the on-demand economy gain ground globally, Africa will not be left behind, and Cassava has launched a number of on-demand services via its integrated platform.
Through our portfolio that includes Kwese Media, Technites, Ride hailing services, Haulage services and Tasknites, we are well-positioned to take advantage of our pioneer status in an emerging industry.
