"Talent is evenly distributed but opportunity is not", and a vision to ensure good financial services are not just a utility, but something that every person is entitled to.
In episode 8 of ICORadio's #BlockchainBytes Barry James interviews Maomao Hu (COO and co-founder) and Dickson Nsofor (CEO and co-founder) of Kora Network about their ICO and initiative for blockchain-powered financial inclusion - across Africa and the world; a pilot project empowering farmers in Nigeria; their tokens and ICO; and how to get involved.
- In the pyramid of financial inclusion farmers have been badly served, yet do the most work.
- Kora is enabling people who've never had access to proper banking to be able to receive and send payments swiftly and make payments remotely.
- “We believe that we can shrink the whole world into a small financial service village.”
- Ultimately goal: "To make financial services not just utility, but something that every person is entitled to.”
- “With Kora we are trying to say to the world that we understand that talent is evenly distributed but opportunity is not.”
