Seminar on Geodata for Inclusive Finance: Lessons Learned

Monday, June 24, 2019

As part of the series of events for NpM’s Geodata for Inclusive Finance and Food (G4IFF) workstream, this session will present insights from the three winners of the NpM Innovator’s Challenge: Agri-wallet, Apollo Agriculture and VanderSat. The companies will present their efforts in integrating geodata information with financial services for smallholder famers in Kenya. An open discussion will follow to explore issues of data privacy that may arise from the use of geodata by FinTechs, financial institutions and other actors.

This seminar precedes the “Inclusive Digital Future: A Summit on Responsible Finance in Action” hosted by the Smart Campaign and the Social Performance Task Force (SPTF), from 25 to 27 June. The forum will bring together financial service providers, regulators, investors, and DFS experts for two days of trainings, panels, and interactive breakout discussions, capped off by a field visit to leading Kenyan institutions engaged in digital transformation.
