Despite increased smartphone penetration across the country, Kenyan women are still 27 percent less likely than men to own a mobile phone. Through its partnership with the USAID/Microsoft Airband Initiative, M-KOPA—an African fintech platform that provides digital financial services to underbanked consumers—is working to bridge this gender digital divide by increasing Kenyan women’s access to affordable smartphones, advancing women’s economic opportunities, and fostering more inclusive Internet connectivity.
