This publication gathers the results of a UN Capital Development Fund study to identify the current state of the fintech start-up landscape, its challenges and opportunities for growth in Tanzania. Currently, information on financial technology (fintech) start-ups in Tanzania—defined as new entrants to the financial services industry that use technology to enhance or automate financial services and processes—is fragmented.

The findings from this fintech landscape analysis are the first steps towards developing a centralized repository of information regarding fintech start-ups operating in Tanzania to assess their capacity and needs and identify appropriate areas for collaboration between UNCDF team members and key industry stakeholders to promote innovation in Tanzania.
