The biggest movement in African commerce is the fintech movement. In Uganda, I called the fintech sector, the “Africa’s new growth operating system”. Last week, a fintech signed an agreement to provide zero-interest education financing to Tekedia Institute’s learners. We will bulk discount but they take risks for prepaying us! The full press release is coming.
This is the point – nations rise when pioneering entrepreneurs emerge. The future of education funding will not come through government, in Africa, but through innovators, entrepreneurs and makers. I want to commend those who are building, over just complaining.
This is my message: anything is possible in Africa. But we should not be looking for governments to bring those possibilities.
