‘’At the LHoFT, we strongly believe that financial technology is crucial to advancing financial inclusion and empowering groups that have been left behind by the traditional financial system. Whether it is financing for rural farmers, point of sale technology for under-banked merchants, or specialized insurance products, the positive impact being driven by entrepreneurship is improving lives around the world. As such, Financial Inclusion is a key focus of the LHoFT Foundation.’’ LHoFT says in a statement.
