Browsing: Financial Literacy & Opportunity Week

Kenya’s plans to tax media streaming sites and other apps operating in the country are a threat which will kill the nascent internet enterprises.

with this in mind, the second annual Financial Literacy & Opportunity Week (FLOWK) is currently underway in Nairobi bringing together over 350 delegates to deliberate on how technology impacts financial inclusion and literacy.

Themed “Financial Inclusion & Empowerment in the Digital Age”, the event brings together stakeholders from the government and the financial sector in Kenya.

Delegates are drawn from the government, regulatory bodies, SACCOs, banks, digital lenders, insurance institutions, research and academic bodies and the business community.

Some of the key areas in focus are financial inclusion and social welfare, internet access and community empowerment.

Growth trends and lessons in mobile-based credit, disconnect and missed opportunities and financial literacy and poverty reduction programmes are also part of the discussion.
