Bridging Ghana to the world…

In my last role with a Global Fintech, I headed Business development for Africa. I managed the partnerships with Mobile Financial services providers to catalyse informal sector access to financial services such as savings and loans, paying for affordable solar energy, insurance products etc
I championed the development focus on financial inclusion anchored on the flagship Savings at the Frontier (SatF) program. Throughout the program, we supported Financial Service Providers (FSPs) to build sustainable partnerships with Informal Savings Mechanisms (ISMs), their members and other organizations to improve access to a broader range of financial services.
I expanded the scope of financial services available for the underserved peri-urban and rural populations through migration and digitization onto a mobile money-based group funding and savings platform.
I also provided non-technology support to ensure sustainability, through capacity building & training programs for both FSPs and FSP clients. As of Nov 2019, I achieved bringing on board 4 FSPs proving access to financial services to 100,000 clients with more than 90% being women.

Before that, I founded a digital loyalty & marketing solution start-up. I also sit on advisory boards of two startups, one offering courier service on demand, while the other is Re-inventing Public Transportation.

I am passionate about coaching the youth and I usually participate in Career Coaching and mentoring programs helping to raise the next generation of leaders.

I have also previously held leading technology and innovation roles at leading African mobile operators for 15 years. In my various positions, I championed the implementation of vital strategic programs including 4G deployments, managed services & customer experience transformation initiatives.
