CBC seeks to develop the COMESA MSMEs Digital Financial Inclusion Plan. The goal of this project is to support the design, development and deployment of an integrated digital financial services infrastructure that is low-cost, interoperable and fraud resistant that serves Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) with a keen focus on women and youth, and the customers they transact with at the bottom of the financial pyramid. This would be first developed from a regulatory focus approach, to the business model and finally the actual operational and technical establishment. The regulatory focus will be through the development of a business case study for an integrated digital payment scheme. The study will inform a common payments policy for MSMEs that offers low transaction costs for domestic and regional digital payments thereby improving cross border trade .
