Expanding into Uganda and Mozambique
Mozambique is an important hub for international trade in the southern African region. Its deep seaports, a large pool of labor, and strategic location allow it to connect to global markets.
China has long helped Mozambique in its struggle for independence, and the Chinese government is willing to work with other African countries to build cross-border infrastructure in the region. President Xi Jinping said on Thursday that his country is ready to boost cooperation with Uganda and Ethiopia.
According to Raxio, the company plans to establish a network of interconnected data centres across Africa by 2023. The facility in Mozambique will be a key component of its digital backbone. It will be located at Beluluane Industrial Park, a 20-km drive from Maputo, and will be powered by hydro-generated grid power.
In addition to building its data center in Mozambique, the Raxio Group has also established presences in other countries in the region, including Democratic Republic of Congo and Ivory Coast. It is a portfolio company of Roha Group Inc., a global investment firm that focuses on developing profitable businesses in Africa.
Finclusion Group, an African credit-led neobank, has closed a $2 million equity financing round. The funding will support the company’s expansion plans. It also brings the company closer to its aim of becoming the leading international neobank in Eastern and Southern Africa. This will be achieved by consolidating the group’s footprint across the continent.
Founded in mid-2018, Finclusion Group is focused on boosting financial inclusion in Sub-Saharan Africa. By using AI algorithms, the company provides financial services to its African customers. Currently, the neobank offers a range of products, including BNPL, insurance, and other financial services. It also works with microfinance institutions, allowing them to access new customer bases.
