Over 50% of Adult Africans lack access to formal credit. Partly because they do not have the typical collateral required by the banks (commercial & Microfinance) and as such are excluded. Financial institutions have no way of trusting people in this demography because they have no financial history and the process of ascertaining their ability to pay using traditional methods can be nearly impossible. 

But what If we think in a different direction?  No matter how "impoverished" or "asset-lacking" an individual might be, we find every person at least has an origin, a descent and a community. This community is definitely an asset. Can the community that an individual has built over time constitute a collateral or a basis of trust for the individual?

Social reputation is bringing back an ancient technology to solve a modern problem. During this session we will explore how social connections can provide a digital fingerprint and data that can be accessed into some sort of collateral and asset to build more trust with financial institutions.

By leveraging on online, mobile, social media & other external data sources, can we harness the vast information available and provide a Social Reputation Score against which financial institutions can lend, invariably leading to financial inclusion?
