What is a pilot doing at a Fintech company you might ask? COVID taught me, and my sector in general, a lot of things. Diversification of thought and skill sets was one thing, but the power of community had to be the other. As a young person (28) I got to learn that the Africans my age are building what they need, to be anything they want. Being the youngest continent on the planet, 60% of the population is under 25 years old with a median age of 19.7, Africa’s future is her young people. They are innovative, daring and are slowly but surely making their mark know and presence felt on various global stages. Equitable resource distribution is the missing link. The resources are largely available for the most part, but we need a way to share them amongst ourselves. Peer-to-peer lending is building on who we are to energize what we want. Tribbe, for me, is that energy in motion.
