“Focusing on people has driven our flexible approach in all markets; we have activated our agile agents’ network structure to commence our operation. These networks consist of verified CBG-compliant partners we have adequately onboarded to help drive our financial inclusion goal. While we are starting with 20 agent locations in The Gambia, this is also a path to job creation and self-reliance for the youth and women of The Gambia.”

During his keynote address, The President of The Gambia, his Excellency Adama Barrow, represented by the Minister of Trade, Mr Baboucarr Joof, expressed his delight at the launch of Kolomoni Microfinance in The Gambia and asserted that Kolomoni’s financial inclusion goals align critically with the vision for a prosperous and thriving Gambia.

“In line with our NFIS 2025 goal, we have developed two key interventions to fast-track the inclusion of vulnerable women and youths in the formal financial system. First, banking with strong technology backing and an urban-to-rural strategy can potentially change how we handle money and provide widespread access to financial services just like Kolomoni is about to start,” the Minister explained.
