Furthermore, Guinea Fintech Week 2023 which is expected to attract a wide range of participants, including representatives from financial institutions, startups, regulators, investors, and international organizations couldn’t have come at a better time than now as the country has been making efforts towards attaining a very financial inclusive society with recent data showing that the level of financial inclusion has increased not because of banking institutions or decentralized economic systems, but because of the offer of digital financial services. With an evolution of the proportion of the adult population with an account going from 7% in 2014 to 23.5% in 2017. While this percentage remains low, it is essential to help financial institutions to better understand the needs of this population to adapt their products and provide financial education for young people.
