As the Central Banks in North Africa and in particularly Egypt embark on a journey of financial inclusion, technology transformation is the key to drive to a cashless economy.

The emergence of innovative and agile digital technologies presents the perfect opportunity to help leapfrog the unbanked and underbanked North Africa populations into financial inclusion.

From mobile banking, to e-wallets and even blockchain adoption, the technological approach is finally allowing North Africa an alternative to the current cash-dominated financial system.
