How Kenya’s M-Akiba App Can Teach Nigeria a Lot About Financial Inclusion

The Nigerian government has spoken a lot about financial inclusion for several years. But it has been awfully slow in terms of policy and action. As a result, not much progress has been made in this direction over the years.

But if Nigeria is serious about making headway towards financial inclusion, it only needs to look at what Kenya is doing.

Launched in 2017, M-Akiba is an investment mobile app developed by the Kenyan Government to enhance financial inclusion for economic development.
