This is us

Cassava Smartech is a diversified smartech group, with a mandate to use digital solutions to drive socio-economic development, and to improve the overall quality of life for all Africans. We are on a transformational mission, and envision a future whereby our solutions are able to touch every life, bringing positive impact particularly to the millions of previously excluded Africans through provision of stable financial service with high level of integrity.

Cassava Smartech has evolved from a Fintech operation (primarily Mobile Money) to a full-fledged smartech business, constantly tapping into new opportunities to address everyday challenges through innovative, inclusive, stable and reliable digital solutions. Today, we have established a balanced portfolio of distinct, yet highly synergistic business pillars, namely FinTech, InsurTech, Social Payments, On-Demand Services, e-Commerce, AgriTech, HealthTech and EduTech. The diversity and integrated nature of the business is what makes Cassava Smartech’s business model truly unique.
