Digital technology impact on Microfinance
La microfinance est un accident de l’histoire provenant de l’incapacité technologique des banques à atteindre, à un moindre coût, les populations loin des centre villes. Avec l’arrivée des téléphones mobiles et de la banque digitale, les banques peuvent cibler ces populations avec un maximum d’efficacité (qualité du service et coût très bas). Il en résulte une remise en cause complète du rôle des IMF qui doivent impérativement s’adapter. Ce changement aura pour conséquence de faire chuter les taux d’intérêt pratiqués et remettre en cause directement le business modèle des IMF.
