How FinTech Firm MyBucks Plans To Offer Access And Financial Inclusion To Africa’s Unbanked

By Mfonobong Nsehe

MyBucks is a leading African FinTech company that focuses on banking the unbanked across emerging economies, providing personalized banking, insurance and lending products and services to a 1.5 million-strong client roster that now sees the brand expanding beyond Africa and well in to Asia Pacific, Europe and potentially, the United States. MyBucks has grown significantly since listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange two years ago, operating today in 13 countries.

With innovation, interconnection and shared development at the forefront of discussions at the BRICS Summit in Johannesburg, I had the timely opportunity to speak to Dr. Christiaan Van Der Walt, Chief Technology Officer at MyBucks, about the brand’s ambitions to offer access and financial inclusion to Africa and the under-connected and under-served around the world.
