Mediasoft is a Côte d’Ivoire-based IT services company that has developed a prototype of an electronic wallet called “Monea”. It intends to implement a network of agents to impact the mass market in Mali and French-speaking sub-Saharan Africa. MSC was engaged to conduct a market study to inform the design of the solution and onboarding for its financial institution partners. Mediasoft worked with the BMS through Monea to implement a decentralized tool. Through strategic partnerships and government involvement, this tool could contribute to digitize payments to make them more formal and offer employment opportunities for agents to youth.
