Banks and financial institutions have been hit hard across the continent due to COVID-19. Therefore, TLG believes that this is right time to invest in the banking sector, both from a commercial point of view and from an impact perspective. TLG believes that overlaying further digital technology within the bank’s product suite will expand the bank’s reach and lay a stronger pathway towards including those currently outside of the financial system.

TLG's fintech expertise makes this an exciting investment for  OBUL as far as her digital and commercial progress goes.
