Humaniq Launches Financial Inclusion Use Case in Ghana
Humaniq, a start-up providing services to the unbanked based on blockchain technology and biometric identification, has announced the next phase in its roadmap as it launches its Ghana Use Case with the goal of onboarding two thousand users.
Phase one of a pilot to improve financial inclusion in Ghana is underway in order to get data from the involvement and feedback of users. Under a local partnership with Reach-Out Integrated, a civic responsibility and social development organisation, and the Local Women Entrepreneurs network, 2,000 people in Ghana are downloading the app in closed groups where they can transact, including through games to incentivise use. They will immediately gain a verified identity which can be used to access financial services.
