Mobiblanc Finance, a subsidiary of ESN Agile Mobiblanc, and Skaleet, an international FinTech providing a Core Banking Platform, have just announced the launch of a new mobile payment project with the National Bank of Mauritania (BNM).
On the framework of the Strategy for Accelerated Growth and Shared Prosperity (SCAPP), the main objective of which is to lead Mauritania to financial emergence by 2030, the BNM, has a crucial role to play in terms of financial inclusion and massification of electronic payment methods intends to provide people with a digital banking platform and a mobile payment solution, by offering legal tender electronic money to meet the demand resulting from the decline in the use of cash in payment transactions.
The BNM has therefore launched the “Click” project, which is part of the strategic plan for the digital transformation of the BNM and which aims to combat the massive use of cash at the national level, support the strategy of financial inclusion, and facilitate the Mauritanian population’s transition from a cash solution to a new digital solution while capitalizing on a strong and innovative brand.
The solution with an e-Wallet ecosystem that the BNM offers to its customers, in addition to guaranteeing security, aims to facilitate access to basic financial services for unbanked populations, develop e-Commerce in Mauritania and in the sub-region and stimulate the growth of employment and entrepreneurship.
Mobiblanc is joining forces with Skaleet to support the BNM in its digital transformation journey towards modern solutions.
“We are proud to support the BNM in the launch of this solution, which marks a major step in our strategy aimed at being a long-term trusted partner,” said Obbad Eddaoudi – CEO of Mobiblanc Finance.
“The “Click” solution is based on an innovative and flexible Core Banking Platform providing a full range of payment functions. This technological platform facilitates the deployment of new functionalities in a few weeks allowing the BNM to promote financial inclusion in Mauritania and Mali,” said Hervé Manceron – CEO & co-founder of Skaleet.
The technological partnership between Mobiblanc Finance and Skaleet will ensure the overall functional and technical scope of the BNM’s e-Wallet “Click” mobile application. The agility of these players in the North and West African market combined with the expertise of the banking sector is a technological choice of excellence for financial institutions.
