Zambia, Rwanda, Liberia

AccessHolding is introducing a Mobile Wallet in its banks in Africa. The client asked LFS to support the strategy definition for AccessHolding banks in Liberia, Rwanda, Zambia and Madagascar. The objective of the consultancy was to make the experience and consultancy input delivered by LFS to AccessBank Tanzania available to the other banks in the network implementing the wallet. To adapt the wallet to the specific situation of each bank, country-specific market conditions, institutional requirements, readiness and capacity were taken analysed and taken into account. For its implementation in Zambia, the provided solution was awarded the prestigious innovation prize for MSME and Agricultural Finance by the EIB 2019.
