CIO East Africa on Open Banking – Myriad Connect is featured

““In developed nations, fintech is helping transform the existing financial services landscape, where in Africa it is about bringing financial services to large sectors of the population who have never had access to financial services before. Open Banking can play a unique role in this,” says Willie Kanyeki, Myriad Connect Business Development Director – Africa.
